I’d like to tell you about the pilgrim trip to the Alexander-Svirsky Monastery. I could go there by myself, but it just didn’t feel right… What I wanted is to make a pilgrimage with the proper mood and my brothers and sisters in faith. So I went there with the Andcross Pilgrim center https://www.andcross.ee
It was the right thing to do. Because the trip went exactly how I imagined. There was a priest on the bus. On our way to the monastery, we talked to him about God, religion, and faith. We were listening to chants and watching videos about Christianity on the bus. This has created a completely different mood compared to taking a car and going there alone.
The monastery impressed me a lot. There are sites where the Holy Trinity and the Most Holy Theotokos were seen. The relics of St Alexander Svirsky are kept there. After kissing them, people get help, and their souls and bodies are healed. There are also holy springs with healing water.
We attended a service at the monastery, and I confessed for the first time in my life. After that, I felt so relieved. Moreover, I didn’t even know how much tension I had, I was just living with it. And only after that trip, I felt that everything was so easy. Now I thank the Almighty for that trip. Because we need to thank even more often than we ask.
