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.
