Chasin' down a Hoodoo...

« on: January 23, 2014, 01:14:30 PM »

This thread could've easily been started in a number of places, but I thought it best worked in Faith issues.

 I've seen this documentary many times and each time I watch it, I learn something new.  It touches on history, Coptic monasticism, and of course, the importance of the Jesus Prayer in our lives. 

For your edification:

I bought it from iTunes for pretty cheap. Definitely an edifying documentary worth a view or three.

I have the DVD and watched it several times - it's not bad.  If you liked Fr. Lazarus at El Antony Monastery there are many more videos related to him on youtube, The Last Anchorite is really nice.

Thanks for the link, never seen it before. I was introduced to the Jesus prayer by a book, and it was a life changing event.
Never has a day gone by since when I did not say it at least once.

The Lord gathers his sheep, I fear I am a goat. Lord have mercy.
