Father Lazarus is a Coptic hermit living in one of the places where Saint Anthony lived in Egypt (Anthony is significant in Christian monastic history).
Fr Lazarus has had a fascinating story; an Australian who is now living the most radical consequence of the realisation that God is our end.
Rev. Peter Owen-Jones, an Anglican priest, in a BBC documentary goes to spend time where Father Lazarus lives:
As with so much of the desert and monastic tradition, much of what Fr Lazarus says and lives is applicable in our own lives – whatever the context (as Fr Peter Owen-Jones experiences and clarifies).
The book, Desert Father: In the Desert with Saint Anthony, is similarly insightful. It connects St Anthony, Fr Lazarus, and our own lives.
