I am not sure where to post this, so I put it here. The link is a little info about a monk who walked from Siberia to Mount Athos


I hope he is not called a hyperdox herman in this forum  :angel:

That's really cool! May his prayers be with us!

I actually told someone about this just yesterday. Amazing and inspirational story.

I hope he is not called a hyperdox herman in this forum  :angel:

I think one of the requirements for being a hyperdox herman is to be a convert. Also from what it seems, it was really his only way of getting there.
