"Dearest Mor, why do you not reply to my letters?"
Probably because responding to them would nullify the PFA he swore out to keep you away.

Makes sense, I suppose.
It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

You're going to get a letter now too, albeit one of a very different tone.

Thanks brother. I can never get a straight answer from my wife about anything regarding my appearance. So I have no idea which she prefers. My daughter freaked out when I first shaved it. But she likes it now. But I'm gonna grow it back. I just don't feel right shaving and trying to look manicured. Plus, when you're as ugly as I am, it's best to cover up as much as possible.  ;)

You have a beautiful family, Gebre.

I'm the one in the red T-Shirt. The priest is Deacon Marcellus, a very blessed man well engaged in missionary work, with a large, rapidly growing, flock. Me and my fiancée (hair tied, by his right) are not his catechumens, but it is great to be among them as a friend. Something in the back of my head tells me I have already posted this picture here, but I could be wrong.

^^ So I remembered well the face from a family picture you've posted once here, on oc.net. He's a very nice man, after the lecture we were talking quite a lot (firstly he had some questions regarding the topic, then with the priests, Ksenia and one of the guys had a coffee, so we had various discussions).

I'm in the first line, in the middle. After giving a speech in Supraśl monastery about situation of Christians in Turkey and Syria.


Wonderful picture.  What was the content of your speech if you don't mind me asking (it's ok if you don't want to tell).
Holy Toledo!

Brief history of Arabic Christianity. Brief history of Syria, including Ba'ath party and Asads, some general things about Antiochian Church in Syria and Turkey (metropolies, Orthodox villages and towns, numbers, some traditions) and persecutions after 2011. I've shown quite a lot of photos and short films.
Pray for persecuted Christians, especially in Serbian Kosovo and Raška, Egypt and Syria

Wow, good work.  If you ever are doing a project again and are fishing around for sources PM me and let me know, maybe I can help.

It's good to have a complete beard again... it was like I'd gone most of the winter without a coat.  8)

As for now I'm probably the unique quite known member of Polish Church knowing at least a bit Arabic.

But yeah, why not, I'll remember your offer if I need something :)

But now it's too late to have such nice coat, probably it's a torture having a large beard when it's hot...
