Justin Peter, Abbot of Saint John Cassian Monastery in Constanta.

“It was 25 days long, but so beautiful. There were days of fasting, repentance, prayer, gnashing of teeth, pain, abstinence, glorification, and great joy.” Caesar wrote to Elisha adding:

“This post was the easiest I’ve ever run. It wasn’t a short fast, but it was very intimate, clean and simple, something you can do from the heart for God. That’s why I felt like it wasn’t. As if I had eaten in the morning and I hadn’t I need food now.The 25-day fast was not actually by us who participated in the Hajj, but by the Lord Himself for us. I was not hungry nor did I suffer from it for any reason.

Physically there was a lot of pain. There was one for every step and one very intense for every morning and evening you spent on the road. However, surprisingly, I had no weeds or blisters. I had no upheaval or issues that would make me or us delay or put off. The legs became stronger and knew another way to work – much more intensely for God’s sake. And they managed to get us where we wanted to go.

From a spiritual point of view, we had the opportunity and time to review all our sins, all our lives. We confess to God daily through prayer that is said mile after mile. In the past 3 days, I also made sure that our trip was approved by God, and then I got rid of this question as well.

We have had the pleasure of not being bothered by almost any media reporter, which is why we have had the time to seek God’s help to spread the information we bring. I have gladly received the understanding again that this approach must be carried out more quietly than in the light of rooms. So yesterday we quietly arrived at the Cathedral of the Salvation of the Nation, where we made our sacrifice to the icon of the Mother of God and the Lord Jesus Christ and. The longest walking pilgrimage without food in history was thus completed: 25 days, 1,311,000 steps, 1,017 km.

May God help us all to walk in the path of truth only and to do the will of the Father. Fasting and prayer should be tools for us to discern the good and cleanse ourselves from the bad.
