A Year in the Hermitage of The Holy Cross (WV)

A great video on Orthodox Monasticism.

I'd describe myself as a member of "Roman Catholics for Orthodoxy."

Rather than engage in theological debate, which has its place, but its above my pay grade, it is so worth looking at lived examples of conversion to Christianity. Monastic life is simply Christian life lived as fully as possible (which is not so different than every other way Christians live, with husband or wife and family).

Let's pray for these monks, who are certainly praying for us and the whole world.

On a lighter note, the beards are incredible!
