Fr. Patrick, New Zealand, very likable, dear man who was mostly our point of contact for other monks. BTW, his eyes realy are like that.

The answer to a life free from cancer may have arrived at last: live like a monk. Research into one of the world's most isolated monastic communities has revealed that only a tiny number of brothers have suffered from the disease in the past decade.
The austere existence of the monks of Mount Athos has been notorious in Greece for generations but, until this week, few beyond the peninsula's monastic walls had considered mimicking their sombre lifestyle.
Now the monks are at the centre of a media frenzy, as health enthusiasts chase the latest cancer-beating fad. But anyone hoping to make a health tourism trip to the mountain should give up now as the monks do not welcome visitors. Their stress-free existence, away from women and the outside world, is one theory as to why the number of them suffering from the disease is so astoundingly low.
