CBS 60 Minutes Special on Mt Athos
Updated February 28, 2016
Dear Parish Faithful,
I know that some of you watched 60 Minutes on Sunday evening, and were impressed by the coverage given to Mt. Athos, clearly the main story of this segment of that popular program. All things considered, I thought that it was well-done, with a good and respectful script accompanying the breathtaking views of the “holy mountain,” the interiors of the large and beautifully frescoed monasteries, and the interviews with some of the monks. For many, Mt. Athos has remained the heart of the Orthodox world since its foundation in the 10th c. during the Byzantine era of the Church’s existence. I am hoping that in the not-too-distant-future we can perhaps watch this segment together as a larger discussion group.
