Week of December 17, 2000
|Ataba, Egypt. Monastery of Saint Theodore.
"One of Paul's English students has been wanting to take us to see some of the Coptic Orthodox Churches and Monasteries."
|Saint Theodore killing a dragon.
"The Monastery is named after a Monk, Saint Theodore. He lived in the dessert and was fed by ravens and drank from a well there. They say he is not Elijah, although the story has its parallels."
"It is really a modern type of building compared to other things here. And it was very clean
looking and peaceful inside the walls."
|The Well of Saint Theodore.
"To avoid offending our friend and guide we had to drink some of the
water from the well. We suffered no adverse affects--which is a miracle!"
