After looking at the movie trailer on Byzantine Texas last night, Father found this video which is a longer one taken at the same monastery, the Cathedral of St. Panteleimon. This is on the occasion of their patronal feast (and only includes scenes inside the cathedral). Apparently a movie is being filmed there about life in that monastery and will come out this month. Father got first dibs for posting (drat) so I waited until this morning to post it. (: I know you can see it’s almost ten minutes long, but it may be the most beautiful ten minutes you spend all day. Please take a minute (or ten) to watch.* And do yourself a favor and open it up to full screen. It brought tears to my eyes and made me feel very humbly blessed that I should belong to such a church.
*If you only have a minute, follow the link to Byzantine Texas to watch the actual movie trailer which is much shorter and contains a much broader selection of scenes from the movie.
