60 minutes has done a great piece on Mt. Athos. If I was Greek Orthodox, you would find me there. The only deterrent to me is the fact that there is no meat…but I could get used to that. Western Christendom, where is your version?
The beauty of the monks praying assiduously as St. Paul commands is heartening to me. Watch the lips of the monks in the background…they are always moving. The Jesus prayer is the first I learned in my teenage years as i was learning to pray.
Oh, the icons are overwhelming.
