About Me

My name is Matthew. I am a pilgrim. I belong to the Church of the East and the Syriac Tradition in The Patriarchate of Antioch, where the followers of Jesus were called Christians for the first time ever.

The Church of Antioch was found by the Apostole Peter.

As a pilgrim I went to pray to the most holy sites for Christians. Places that are important because Jesus, The Mother of God, the Apostoles or important Saints have lived or preached there like Tyre, Patmos, Santiago, Rome, Madras/Chennai, etc...

Places where important relics are preserved like Mounth Athos, Bari, Amalfi, Salerno, Benevento, Rome, Padova, Annaya, Paris, Trier, Aachen, etc...

I learn to knot for an old pious man in front of a church. My gratitude and prayers to him.

I have been knotting rosary and komboskini for the last 15 years and I will keep knotting as long as the Mother of God want me to.
