Video recording of Fr. Stefan (Papa Stephanos, † 2001), a serbian hermit that spent over 40 years on Karoulia [rocky region of Mount Athos], in the cave where Fr. Sophrony Sakharov had lived for some years. He is chanting the Troparion of Pentecost in Church Slavonic.

He was a modern-day hermit living in a ‘cave’. A truly joy-filled man, as one can see the precious moment when he opens the Royal [Holy] Doors…

“Blessed art Thou, O Christ our God, Who hast revealed the fishermen as most wise by sending down upon them the Holy Spirit – through them Thou didst draw the world into Thy net. O Lover of Man, glory to Thee!”

May we have his prayers, now, and in every age!
