It was a long, hot climb up to the monastery and at first we wondered if it was worth it .
We were greeted with an open door . Stepping inside the cool dark interior and turning again , we found ourselves looking out into this sunlit scene; green and vibrant. And suddenly the landscape seemed to come alive and all was changed.
Alleluia !Christ is Risen . He is Risen indeed Alleluia !
