Faith Issues / Re: Using phone/tablet instead of prayer book
« Last post by RaphaCam on Yesterday at 09:04:06 PM »
Scam, if people in your parish aren't bothered by your possible use of phone/tablet, you shouldn't be offended that people from their own other parishes have their opinions on that. If people in your parish are bothered, you should serve them regardless of what from other parishes say. In short: let it go.

Since I'll be assisting folks from an Orthodox country during the Olympics, I've done a list of Eastern Orthodox parishes in Rio I'm aware of with some details and addresses. Since someone in this forum might benefit from it (or maybe someone might google about it and find this page), I'll post it here.

So I guess if I'm following this correctly, the beast is slaughtered, the blood is drained upon the earth, then it is butchered, and *THEN* it is "koshered" (using "kosher" salt)?

Thanks for your replies! They were very valuable and useful for me.

By the way, I've read one more interesting news... Archbishop Job (Getcha) of Telmessos replaced another hierarch of the Ecumenical Patriarchate Metropolitan of Pergamon John (Zizioulas) in the post of co-chairman of the Joint International Commission for Theological Dialogue between the Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church:

http://risu.org.ua/en/index/all_news/confessional/interchurch_relations/63851/

 But as I remember, the latter was mentioned among the probable Ecumenical patriarch Bartholomew's successors. What do you think? Is there any possibility that this things are somehow interconnected? What was the reason for this change?

Met Zizioulas is getting on in years. As for why Met Getcha was given that position, it's because he was basically run out of Paris on a rail. If you want the gory details: http://situationarcheveche.blogspot.com/
