Someone shared this video entitled "Three Parables" with me today and it really spoke to me. I thought it was particularly timely for Great Lent. It was produced by the Monastery of St. Elizabeth in Minsk.

It's in Russian but subtitled in English. It's probably best to maximize the size to be able to read the captions better.

Three Parables

I particularly was moved by the last parable. Hope others here may enjoy the video as well.

Wonderful video, Dave. Thanks for posting the link.

Many years,
