One of the first books I read on my journey towards Orthodoxy was The Way of the Pilgrim. This is a story of a young man who sets out to find out the meaning of continuous prayer. He comes into contact with several people who aid him in his quest on this journey and he eventually does find the meaning.
The series of videos below is a similar story. A Canadian-Romanian sets off on a journey to find out more about becoming a saint and if there are still saints today. To do this he returns to his native Romania.
I have only watched the first episode but if the rest are like this one it will be a great series. It is in English and some Romanian with English subtitles. We worth the time to watch.
