Mount Athos on CBS

60 Minutes on CBS has just broadcasted a very appealing story on Mount Athos. It is interesting to see this video, since it is a very good advertisement both for Agion Oros and Orthodoxy.


As they explain, it's called Mount Athos and prayers have been offered there every day, with no interruption for more than a thousand years. It was set aside by ancient emperors to be the spiritual capital of Orthodox Christianity and has probably changed less over the centuries than any other inhabited place on the planet. The monks come to Mount Athos from all over the planet and have no contact with the rest of the world. Maybe it is a good idea to allow more reporters, channels, newspapers into Mount Athos in order to spread awareness, not only to Christians but to everyone in the world.
