60 Minutes on Mount Athos and St. Anthony

As an Eastern Catholic, Melkite Greek Catholic, I was deeply provoked by the following 60 Minutes episode very much worth watching.

    Erdrogan better be careful what he asks for. If Turkey gets into the EU, it will be Brussels, not Ankara, that makes final decisions in many matters (not that the monastery would fare better in Brussels, but it certainly couldn’t do worse).

    I expected to be really blown away by this film but instead I was left a little cold. The reporter asked a lot of bland questions and kept repeating himself. I was not impressed that the monks wrote to Hitler asking for his protection. That made me a bit sick. It’s one thing to stay neutral, it’s quite another to make a deal with the devil. No icon is worth Hitler’s aid.
