Εις Oρος Μικρoν
Απανθiσματα Χριστιανικοu Ορθoδοξου Μοναχισμοu

From the Little Mountain takes you through a year at the Hermitage of the Holy Cross in West Virginia. This video is an attempt to portray some of the beauty and struggle of monastic life using quotes from the Scriptures and the Holy Fathers of the Orthodox Church. Insights about monasticism from one of the senior monks at the monastery are given as you are visually taken through the Church liturgical year and the changing seasons in the mountains. This is a unique documentary of an Orthodox monastery in the 21st century, but the imagery and principles set forth are as ancient (and relevant) as those written by the 6th century instructor of monks, Abba Dorotheos.

The first time that I saw the dvd was the English version. Then I saw it the Greek version! It’s a wonderful video and the words of father Seraphim help you learn what Christian Orthodox Monasticism means. Specially, I remember these words: “Before the monk comes in the monastery he thinks that he is healthy, beautiful and well dressed, but the room where he lives is full of darkness. Then when he lives in the monastery and the light comes in the room he realised that he is dirty and injured.” I wish our dear God bless you!
