THE SPRING

One of the greatest wonders of this beautiful spiritual oasis located more than 400 metres above sea level, and containing beautiful gardens, whilst surrounded by arid wilderness, is the presence of water springs. In the same way that God welled up water from a rock to nourish those in the wilderness during Moses’ time, He also welled up water from a rock to nourish our beloved saint Antony, and all his children who have dwelt in this place for the last 1,700 years! Truly this is evidence of God’s gracious care for His people.
