A young Syrian Orthodox shamosho (deacon) who lived in California recently passed away. He was about to become a monk. To honor his memory, his family has produced a documentary on the monastic life well worth seeing.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZCS5gnj2MUY
This documentary was created in remembrance of Deacon Issa Albert Simon. Our goal is to bring society closer to God and give them a clearer perspective about the rewards of a monastic life in this new ear.
This documentary was taped at St. Antony Monastery at Newberry Springs, Ca. It's a documentary that interviews various monks as they talk about the monastic life and the steps involved in becoming a monk.
