    Hi Carl, I just purchased Mysteries of the Jesus Prayer yesterday (it’s only $4.99!) and I’m excited to watch it today.

    • Carl McColman

      You’re right, Tana. I bought it yesterday too!

    Wow. Both of these look fantastic! Thank you for recommending these movies.

    These look amazing. The cinematography alone is breathtaking. I’d never heard of them til this post, so thanks for pointing them out. I’ll download Mysteries today, and keep an eye out for the other one.

    Yay, an Eastern Orthodox video on monasticism! I’m gonna get it. Thanks Carl!

    Also, cannot wait for Of Gods and Men to hit a Minneapolis theater. I hope it gets here…
