Mysteries of the Jesus Prayer (Movie)

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I bought the book Mysteries of the Jesus Prayer and had order the video. I have now had a chance to watch this movie and was very taken by it. Unfortunately the producers were not able to take video footage of the Holy Mountain of Athos, but were able to take still photos and record audio. This video stirred in me further my search for stillness and gave a good insight into monastic communities and their life of prayer.

On a side note, it seems to be a great video for those planning a pilgrimage to holy sites as they mention many times the effort they had to go through to get access to the communities 😉 .

Worth a watch, snippet from youtube below.
