To My understanding mount athos is NOT HOLY there are a lot of monks that are against each other saying one is better than the others.
i heared from a priest who lived about 12 years in Greece that the monks there are sooooo radical and embrace a very fanatic point of view when it comes to the OO church and are against any dialogue between the 2 churches.... :-[
The monks of Athos have never, as far as I am aware, opposed dialogue between the two churches.
Mount Athos is a place with peace and is the true place for pray.I know Aethiopian Orthodox Christian who he go to mount Athos.
