Theotokos, Abbess of Mt. Athos-From the Holy Tradition of the Church we learn that in the year of 52 A.D, the Holy Virgin and St. John the Theologian were sailing to see St. Lazarus on the island of Cypress. Their ship was blown off course during a fierce storm, and they were driven to the Aegean Sea and finally to a calm coast on the northeast shore of what we now know as Mt. Athos. The Holy Virgin was so taken by the beauty of this area. She then heard a voice saying, ?This place shall be a garden for those that want to save their souls.
