Profitis Elias

As we ride along the road we often see beautiful little churches standing defiantly at the top of the highest peaks. These churches always belong to the ancient Prophet Elijah. Likened to Moses, he seems to hold a pretty high status in the hierarchy of Orthodox saints. In Thrace, we found our way to one of his little churches tucked away in a thick grove of trees. We slept well contemplating Elijah's spectacular ascent to heaven from a very distant mountain top.
