    Hi Fr. Seraphim –

    This was such an interesting video; I love seeing catacombs and was glad you posted one!

    You made a comment aout which I had a question, though: A catacomb wasn’t a “true” catacomb unless it was a place of refuge first. Why was that? (Or am I misunderstanding?)

    Thank you! And hoping to see more vodcasts about your adventures.

    Thanks for the comments. What I meant was that a catacomb [in the Christian historical sense] was a place where Christians worshiped in order to escape persecution but that this particular cave area had apparently not been used for that purpose.
