He's widower for 4 years. But, we have a few other priests at the parish, all of them are married.Not mine, and actually it's more about what our rector (main priest at parish) said in the end of today's Liturgy, before kissing the cross - as usually, he was greeting us because of Sunday, but he added 2 things (the second is better):
1. "Today afater the lunch and rethinking about today's sermon [that's normal part of his weekly speech) you can go to park and enjoy today's hot weather - let be this Sunday so joyous as 28 degrees of todays' temperature. And let sit on the lawn in park - well, I've heard it's prohibited, but it's normal, in whole Europe people can sit on lawns"
2. "I'm glad so many mothers with their little treasures have come today. Please, o you mothers, put on shorter skirts, no to trip on the stairs to the church".
I have to add that he is an old priest, well-esteemed, but very direct and open in relations with people.
The wife of the priest don't allow in our Church for women or girls with short skirts or short pants to enter the Church. She prepared shawls and long skirts for them.
Anyway, I think he meant a bit shorter, so not long to ankles, bur ratehr to knees, but it sounded quite... Surprising
