Pilgrimage to the Painted Monasteries in Moldavia

A few new photos from our ongoing pilgrimage to Moldavia. These are from the Dormition of the Theotokos Monastery in Humor, one of the UNESCO world-heritage painted monasteries. All of these were painted inside and outside in the early 1500s (although some of the monasteries were built in the 1400s), and the frescoes are amazingly well kept.

Even better kept than the beauty of the outside walls is the beauty of the inside spiritual life of these centres of monastic life. This is a miracle in itself, a miracle for which I am immensely grateful to God.
