VIDEO: 20th Anniversary of the Repose of Hieromonk Seraphim (Rose)

* September 2 is the anniversary of the repose of Hieromonk Seraphim Rose. I plan to post extensively on Father Seraphim throughout this week.

This is a very special video, a digest of events and talks from the 20th anniversary of Father Seraphim's repose, held at St Herman of Alaska Monastery in Platina CA in 2002. Originally produced and made available by the Father Seraphim Rose Foundation, their website is no longer functioning, and the DVD and VHS versions seem to no longer be available, so I am posting this online for the edification of the faithful.

Features brief audio clips from some of Fr Seraphim's talks, a sermon at the Divine Liturgy by Fr Thomas Hopko, some wonderful remarks at the luncheon by Hieromonk Damascene, some warm and edifying personal recollections of Father Seraphim by another of his spiritual children, Fr Alexey Young (Hieromonk Ambrose in monastic tonsure), a tour of Father Seraphim's monastic cell, and much more.
