Lebanese Maronite Priest Hani Taouk celebrates Mass on the ski slopes of the Cedars Mountains for the Feast of Saint Maron (Maroun) on February 9. St. Maroun, a 4th-century monk and the contemporary and friend of St. John Chrysostom, left Antioch for the Orontes River in modern-day Syria to lead an ascetic life, following the traditions of Anthony the Great of the Desert and Pachomius.
