Belarus: Belarusian journalists finished the work on a new pro-life movie called “Athos – pro-life! The legacy of Saint Paisios of Mount Athos”. The first copy of a movie created by Artem Mahakeev and Matvey Rodov was given as a present to a First Lady of Serbia during her visiting of a cathedral church in Minsk.
The film dedicated to a pro-life movement in Orthodox Christian countries has been filmed this year on the Holy Mount of Athos. It was created with the participation of the abbots of the numerous monasteries on Athos. One of such abbots was archimandrite Mefodiy (Markovich), the abbot of the Serbian monastery Hilandar on the Holy Mount.
Mrs. Dragica Nikolic, the First Lady of Serbia, expressed an interest in the topic of the movie as the idea of pro-life is important for all the Slavic peoples, both on the Balkans and in the Eastern Europe. Also Mrs. Nikolic told the journalists about her church activities – she is engaged in creating church mosaics in Serbia.
The movie “Athos – pro-life! The legacy of Saint Paisios of Mount Athos” will soon be shown on the Orthodox Christian channel “Souyz”. The on-line version of the movie will also be available on Youtube.
