The Realm of the Miraculous

During a recent trip to Paros, I’d set myself a mission to visit the Monastery of Longovarda in order to pass on to the monks the story of an Englishman, Vincent Clarence Scott O’Connor, who’d visited the Monastery in 1927 and had written warmly of the welcome and hospitality shown by the Abbot and monks. I too experienced that hospitality and kindness and, in my conversations with the monks, I learned of the miraculous wartime deeds of the Abbot at that time, Philotheos III.
