Holy Protection Monastery: Interior

We received a blessing to take pictures after we had been at the monastery for a few days. A few of the following pictures can be credited to Father. I hadn’t posted the link to Holy Protection earlier so here it is.

This icon of the Theotokos renewed itself during the course of one
 Liturgy. It was almost entirely black when it arrived.

The altar, showing the reliquaries.

Notice the beautiful hand-carved wood. The whole church is like this.

Gerontissa Olympiada has written all (or almost all) of the icons.
