St. John the Evangelist Melkite Church

I decided to stop over at our neighbours at St Johns Melkite church in Greenacre. 3 minutes walk from St Charbel in Punchbowl, to see what they have done for christmas.

This beautiful little shrine is reminiscent of the cave at Our Lady of Magdouche church in Lebanon.

Legend has it that Jesus and his followers stayed in that cave while travelling in Lebanon.

I love Byzantine art. Hopefully over the next couple of weeks, ill have a chance to visit the church and see what it has to offer in terms of its religious art and icons.
