Quote from: Seekingtrue
Yes we who are far from sainthood we can recognize a living saint and I'm talking from personal experience.Yes they are gentle soo gentle it can not be described it is like gentleness and humility in one and also they have this light this energy it's beyond words...and when you are near them you feel ecstatic and very happy

Nice.

Does anyone know where it be possible to see other videos about the western rite or ones that show western rite liturgies being celebrated?  There doesn't seem to be too much on You Tube.  Perhaps there just isn't much out there, I don't know.

You did a good job putting this together, Subdeacon. Very compelling story about these three priests' journeys to Orthodoxy. I know all three of them and they are terrific pastors. Bishop Thomas put my priest in charge of catechizing these three communities, so many in my parish got to know these persons, their families, and their communities coming in. This video captures these priests' personal narratives well.
