"St. Seraphim, like Francis of Assisi, talked to animals.  One day two nuns saw him deep in conversation with a bear. The bears of the Russian forests are very ferocious, and the two women were terrified. But Seraphim reassured them and showed them that he who is sanctified lives in peace with all creation, just as Adam did before the Fall.”   -Olivier Clement, The Living God: A Catechism, Pg. 90 (h/t gospelofthekingdom)

Mount Athos Monastery  Photograph by Travis Dove  In the ancient monastic community of Mount Athos in northern Greece, Eastern Orthodox Christian monks live much as their brethren did a thousand years ago. A steady influx of young men over recent decades has actually increased their ranks. Mealtimes in the ornate refectory of the Xenofontos monastery, shown here, are a communal (though silent) affair.
