Being on 2800ms, of course I had to take a silly selfie. Mt. Gazbegi was really nice.

Alpo, you look like one of my fraternity brothers when I was in university.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

I can't think of any situation where that would be a problem.

What if someone says Varg Vikernes is a god among men, and you politely disagree, and they snap and attack you, but being too cowardly to engage in a regular fight they wait until you are turned from them and then grab your earrings and rip them out!!!1!? This seems like a very likely scenario that you may face some day soon.

Fraternity? Sorry to hear that hipsterism has invaded your universities too. :P

BTW, have you had cut your hair?

Yup. I got old.

Nope. I wouldn't disagree with the idea. Varg Vikernes is a god among men.

Abouna Daoud has grown to be the most influential Coptic clergyman with his lectures and social services, a true modern Chrysostom.  He has drawn a incredibly huge following around the world (for those who can understand Arabic).  Many bishops have even spoken of his influence for their own sermons, one of whom is HG Bishop Raphael, secretary of the Holy Synod.  His sermons and lectures are indeed captivating and attractive and hundreds of videos of his teachings are available on YouTube.  He is also in charge of social services for orphans in Egypt, for the poor, and medical missions in various areas of the world and even continues with the medical profession himself by screening all Egyptians for hep b and c (he was a physician before ordination, but seems to indicate he continues to work in screening patients in a limited extent).

In terms of speaking, you can say he is the Arabic version of Fr. Thomas Hopko, "speaking the Truth in love."

He is amazing!

Except for his taraneem.

and btw I think I know what you're thinking of re Bishop Raphael, but he never claimed to prepare his sermons from Abouna Daoud.

An excellent synopsis, Mina!  My favorite sermon of Abouna Dawoud's:

Yes...when he does do the spiritual songs, I pulled out the book "The Armenian Church and the Council of Chalcedon" (I'm in the middle of chapter 6 now...good stuff) to read a page or two or translate the untranslated French in it until they're done with the songs.  :P

I went to seminary with Fr. Gabriel.  Small world...
Father Giryus, I met Fr. Gabriel today after liturgy. He told me about our prosphora seal he got from Fr. George his old friend when in seminary. Was it  you, Father?

He is an awesome priest. We are lucky to have him here.

Those are Troparion of St. Mitrophan and Theotokion .
We the laymen used to pray  and read the troparion or theotokion below the icons.
