The last Anchorite – A documentary (interview) movie about a Coptic Oriental Orthodox Hermit

Some time ago, while checking spiritual related videos on youtube, I’ve stumbled on nice movie about probably one of the last left desert hermit monks.
Our age is an age of decaying spirituality and seeing something as hermitage is something absolutely unique.
The movie interestingly shows the desert near Cairo and st. Anthony’s coptic Christian monastery. The monastery is named after saint Anothony – The Great (who is well known in whole Christian dome as a forefather of monastic life. It is interesting fact that still 17 centuries after the creation of the monastery by St. Anthony this spiritual fortress continues to function as an open “Window to Heaven”.

    It is sad coptic Oriental Orthodox are not in communion with us the Eastern Orthodox. There faith is very close to ours. I hope in short future the Monophisite dispute will be resolved and we will be one Church again ….
