hermitage Blaca

My Photo scholarship 2011 entry

When I arrived down the stairs to the cellar a lady tourist was drinking water from ordinary faucet curiously placed on the wall, maybe half meter from the floor. She continued the one-hour tour of monastery not knowing that few centuries ago that wall had enclosed a small cave turning it into cistern. Even few centuries before that the cave was first shelter in the desert for the hermitage founders. Is there a better parable of faith than that of water being where once desert was?
