5.0 out of 5 stars Going there., December 11, 2011
This review is from: 60 Minutes - Mt. Athos (April 24, 2011) (DVD)
"They finally got it right", I heard several say, Orthodox friends who'd been there and then seen this 60 Minutes look at Mt. Athos. CBS was refused entry to these monastic communities or to do this story for almost 30 years. The monks have changed their minds and opened up some. Now we have this reverent overview of the Holy Mountain, its impact through the last 1,000 years and today.

I've since booked my trip to this place for 2013 and look forward to walking the dirt roads between monasteries here. I will venerate the relics of Father Porphyrios and others who have shown us the light from this mountain. I recommend this DVD. Although it is available online, having a DVD to pop in the player for friends would be nice. This is a warm story on what it is like to make an entire simple life of simply, talking to God, living in community with others, staying...near.

So how was the trip?

Still on the boards; but yet a must do. I'm told: "Save up and take a priest with you." Hmm. Good advice. A priest gets you places there I'm told you'd never otherwise get invited to. For example, we were one in 1M visitors to get invited into the library at St. Catherine's two yrs back. My, my.
