Its a quite time, at work, due to a snowstorm, so I've been checking YouTube for talks on Orthodox spirituality and discovered a lot of material by Fr. Lazarus.  According to what is written on YouTube:  "He was an atheist, and now he is Fr. Lazarus ELAnthony, a hermit coming from Australia to live in St. Anthony's Monastery in the deserts of the Red Sea, Egypt."

All his talks on located here:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LhGEcwBtVS8&list=PL15BCEB45C28216DE

I would be interested in knowing what our Coptic brothers thoughts are on this monk.  What I've listened to, I personally, find edifying.

We do not prefer to talk about our saints who are still in the body.

I had the blessing of meeting him: He is not of this world.

That says enough for me.  Thank you.

Watch "The Last Anchorite" (it is featured towards the bottom of the playlist in the OP)

http://vimeo.com/13459920

It features Fr. Lazarus.

I have to admit coming across this video a couple years ago definitely fed my initial inquiry into Orthodoxy.

Thank you very much for this suggestion.  These will be great viewings for Great Lent.

I really think that this series is the finest piece on Orthodoxy on the entire Youtube. Father Lazarus's advice on many things is invaluable. A great personality, in Russia he would be called a staretz (an elder) I guess.

Indeed!

I thoroughly enjoyed it, just now.

Very peaceful.

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

I've watched The Last Anchorite. Fr. Lazarus is a saint.

Thank you for sharing these talks! I will certainly watch them.

I am moved to tears by his videos. Some of the things he says covers some parts of my old life (the life before 2009, when everything changed).
