Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Nice!  What's the story with the big cross in the middle?
How this relates to the coming Antichrist? I don't know...

Nice!  What's the story with the big cross in the middle?

It's a Georgian custom to put such big cross in the middle of the church and st. Gregory Peradze, the patron of this parish, was born in Georgia, taht's the 1st reason. The second reason is that (from what I've heard) before Russian occupation in Poland (and, in consequence, swithcing to be under Moscow instead of Constantinople) in the Orthodox churches there were such crosses too. And this parish is very-Polish oriented as it goes for liturgics (it uses only Polish at the services).

A reference to the military-style cap worn by 4 pictured here, no?
To my shame, I may have been very drunk when I wrote this.

What we woke up to today:

'Evil isn't the real threat to the world. Stupid is just as destructive as evil, maybe more so, and it's a hell of a lot more common. What we really need is a crusade against stupid. That might actually make a difference.'~Harry Dresden
