PRAISE OF THE DESERT - DVD
Fifteen centuries ago, a monk on a desert island wrote a letter about his life as a hermit. The manuscript, which speaks of the spirituality of the desert, spread quickly from Gaul throughout the Roman Empire. Today, the island (Saint- Honorat) located on the French Riviera, is still home to Cistercian monks. This EWTN Original Documentary was filmed on location and explores the powerful spirituality described by the monk, St. Eucher, in his original letter. Also included is an interview with the current Father Abbot of the Cistercians at Notre Dame de Lerins Abbey. 1 disc. 30 mins.
