In addition, Peter has been given the original typed copy of Sandy Thomas’ letter to his parents after escaping from the Holy Mountain. It covers all his time on Athos, and selected parts of this will be in the book!

    A few weeks ago, I gave Fr C at IM K a copy of the transcript of Sandy Thomas’ letter. I also managed to give a digital file of the ST original letter to the Secretary at the monastery where we stayed in May 2019.

    Great photos and a v nice ‘look and feel’ to the blog.

    Well done team!
