"Today the concept of truth is viewed with suspicion, because truth is identified with violence. Over history there have, unfortunately, been episodes when people sought to defend the truth with violence. But they are two contrasting realities. Truth cannot be imposed with means other than itself! Truth can only come with its own light. Yet, we need truth. ... Without truth we are blind in the world, we have no path to follow. The great gift of Christ was that He enabled us to see the face of God".Pope Benedict xvi, February 24th, 2012

The Church is ecumenical, catholic, God-human, ageless, and it is therefore a blasphemy—an unpardonable blasphemy against Christ and against the Holy Ghost—to turn the Church into a national institution, to narrow her down to petty, transient, time-bound aspirations and ways of doing things. Her purpose is beyond nationality, ecumenical, all-embracing: to unite all men in Christ, all without exception to nation or race or social strata. - St Justin Popovitch

The documentary by Goran Vukcevic The Holy Eucharist On Mount Athos was aired last Fall on Radio Television in Vojvodina, Serbia and has now won first prize at the Russki Pushkin Filmfestival near Moscow. It chronicles the pilgrimage of the Army Academy of Serbia to Mount Athos.
The entire documentary can be seen at this link: http://media.rtv.rs/sr_ci/specijali/177

This documentary is in Serbian but the pictures are beautiful, and it is well worth looking at.   If you want to know more, and in English, there is a series of five excellent videos in this blog.  (fr) David
