Ecumenical Patriarch Athenagoras on Mount Athos

The blessed Ecumenical Patriarch Athenagoras was the one who came up with the idea to celebrate the 1,000 year anniversary of Mount Athos in 1963 since the founding of Great Lavra Monastery. This took place in the summer of 1963.

And lastly is a photo of Patriarch Athenagoras as a deacon in 1918 taken at the Holy Monastery of Iveron.
