Aristides: The “frog” of the UC that became a monk – Newsbomb – News

He served in the Special Forces HQ. His dream is to become a monk and make the journey from Sinai to Mount Athos.

Aristides from OUK, where he was a “frog”, is now dedicated to God. The images of him walking from the old national road Lamia – Thessaloniki in order to reach the Monastery of Esfigmenos on Mount Athos, are almost eerie. He walks alone in the rain with the image of the Virgin Mary in his hands, reminding some of a phrase of the award-winning director Giannis Smaragdis: “We all have a piece of God inside us.”
