I saw this a while ago. It's amazing. I would not like to become a monk, but I certainly would like to spend some time living like that. I just couldn't do it for the whole of my life, as I want a family.

The first and third posts, above, were posted as separate threads and I merged them into one topic.


It's an excellent documentary.  It was also discussed here:

Father Lazaros was also shown in a BBC "Extreme Pilgrim" video, discussed and linked to here:

The thing that impressed me about the Extreme Pilgrim video (the second one above) is that it shows how hard it is to be completely isolated in the middle of the desert.  It's been a while since I watched it, but if I recall correctly, the Anglican priest in the video who lived just a little while in Fr. Lazaros' cell, could barely take it.  It makes you realize how close to God Fr. Lazaros must be to live that kind of a life all the time.  It's truly remarkable.  I could never do it.
