WATCH: Mount Athos “60 Minutes” Documentary

“60 Minutes” is a popular, long-form news show on American television. In 2011, the show’s producers were given a very rare opportunity to bring a film crew onto Mount Athos, one of the most secluded and famous sites of monastic life and spiritual retreat in the world.

If you haven’t seen 60 Minutes’ documentary, you need to. It offers a glimpse into a world of prayer and holiness.

Let us know what you think — and feel free to share your own experiences visiting Mount Athos.

IT’S TIME TO SPEAK OUT!

Across the world, Christians are suffering for their faith. Attacked by ISIS and harangued by extremism, Christianity is in danger of being eradicated in the lands of its birth. Yet very few people in the West seem to care — or even know!

That’s why we at OCN believe it’s time to speak out. We’ve covered this issue for a long time, but want to dedicate even more resources to raising awareness and spurring action, using our massive social media following. We reach MILLIONS of people per week, and it’s time for collective action.

Please support this effort by giving to our “10 cent per day” campaign. 100% of your gift will go directly to expanding this ministry, 0% to overhead. Together, we can and will make a difference!

— Fr. Christopher T. Metropulos, OCN Executive Director
