Discovering Egypt’s St Macarius Monastery and Bones of John the Baptist and Elisha

Today we went into the deserts of Egypt to find the monastery of St. Macarius which was built in 365 A.D. It still has 160 monks.

We celebrated the Divine Liturgy with the monks and we accomplished what we intended to do with the bones/tombs of John the Baptist and Elijah’s the Prophet.

Here is a recap with our eight minute video:
