From the Little Mountain

From the Little Mountain is a half hour glimpse into the monastic life of the Holy Cross Hermitage, a monastery in the mountains of West Virginia, which I hope to visit in the very near future. It’s roughly three and a half hours from here, which is such a tremendous blessing to know, considering West Virginia is seen as one of the largest Protestant States in the Country. Until I had attended the Dormition of St. Mary Orthodox Church(also here in WV), I never knew there was a monastery nearby — the closest I had visited was Panagia Prousiotissa in North Carolina.

As my spiritual father is close with the Abbot of Holy Cross, I do hope to visit them soon — rest assured I’ll give you a little glimpse into my visit at that time. May God bless you.

  1. I have visited this monastery, let me just say, that all of the monasteries I’ve visited this hermitage was the most impressing on the soul!

  2. Glory to God! I will be sure to blog about my experience there, at least what is profitable to share. I recently ordered their “From the Little Mountain” DVD and I’m anticipating it with great eagerness. Expect a review on that as well!

    Thank you for commenting Moses, peace be with you.

    Thank you, Isaac! Your zeal inspires me. I hope you get to visit them soon, and I look forward to hearing your report of it, and your thoughts on the dvd as well. The trailer looked good.
