It is hard to believe the first week of Great Lent has already concluded! Things have been dynamic here at St. Catherine’s, and I wanted to witness to a few experiences from this week to the glory of God.

Once the monastery was open to visitors again on Thursday, it gave me my first opportunity to tour the sacristy museum and view my very favorite icon of Jesus Christ, the Pantocrator of Sinai (below), amongst other invaluable treasures of iconography such as St. John’s Ladder of Divine Ascent (below), metalwork, manuscripts, and embroidery.
