FROM THE LITTLE MOUNTAIN (REFLECTIONS ON ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN MONASTICISM) [DVD]
From the Little Mountain DVD takes you through a year at the Hermitage of the Holy Cross in West Virginia. This video is an attempt to portray some of the beauty and struggle of monastic life using quotes from the Scriptures and the Holy Fathers of the Orthodox Church. It is being used in at least one Catholic monastery we know of as a teaching tool for the new (and old) monks. Insights about monasticism from one of the senior monks at the monastery are given as you are visually taken through the Church liturgical year and the changing seasons in the mountains. This is a unique documentary of an Orthodox monastery in the 21st century, but the imagery and principles set forth are as ancient (and relevant) as those written by the 6th century instructor of monks, Abba Dorotheos. We cannot recommend this documentary enough! 32 Minutes.
