Some time ago, Naiana asked for a blessing to look after the gatehouse chapel and also the outdoor chapel under the high stairs. Since then she has faithfully tended these special places, and today she was there with “broom and bucket”. Kirill took care of the laundry and several other tasks while Andy and Vladika Lazar resolved several other problems, so that this day has been most productive. After Vespers Marina brought a huge hamper of food to feed all of us who attended the service, making this day complete with a variety of assistance. Tonight I shall go to bed earlier than usual in the hope that, by getting a good rest, it will be possible to endure the heat that has been promised us for tomorrow.
