Following in the Footsteps of St. Anthony

The following video is a BBC production documenting the journey of Father Peter Owen-Jones, an Anglican priest, to the monastery of St. Anthony in the Egyptian desert. Father Peter is going to the desert where “there’s no escape, there’s no distraction” and we face and deal with our “issues.” He will live alone in a cave for three weeks under the guidance of Father Lazarus, a Coptic hermit who lives in solitude on the Mount of St. Anthony.
