I do not think having a large beard is bothersome when it is hot.  Other men may disagree.

They might, but then they might not be men.

The good thing about living in Rio de Janeiro is that you really get the physical feeling of the Desert Fathers in keeping a beard under 40 Celsius and dry.

This beautiful woman has stayed by my side for 19 years! I don’t know how she’s managed to do it. She has never failed to love me, encourage me, support me, and forgive me. She has given me four beautiful children that have been the greatest gifts in my life. She keeps me honest and keeps me humble (no small task), but she always does so with gracefulness and respect. If I have accomplished anything good or worthwhile over the past 19 years, it is only because of her influence and encouragement. She believes in me even when I don’t believe in myself. I am blessed beyond measure to have such a beautiful, intelligent, supportive, and God-fearing wife by my side. Yes, we have had many hardships and trials along the way, but the blessings have far outweighed the difficulties. I thank God for my wife. I don’t deserve her. I can’t imagine my life without her. Happy Anniversary Sweetie! Thank you for making me a better person and a better man.

From the Divine Liturgy celebrated at St. Peter’s Malankara Syriac Orthodox Cathedral, Philadelphia, PA on 27-Feb-2016.

Fr. Abraham Wassef of St. Mina’s Coptic Orthodox Church, Holmdel, NJ co-celebrated the liturgy with Fr. Joy John and Fr. Jose Daniel of the Malankara Syriac Orthodox Church. Several youth members from the Coptic and Malankara church attended the Sapro, Third Hour, Sixth Hour prayers and the Divine Liturgy.

Which was half the point... I was a big old chicken about declaring my interest in Orthodoxy openly lest any old Calvinist acquaintance should see and upbraid me. Now I am at the pleasant position of not caring a fig who knows what I think.

Probably for many of you is something usual, but for us in Poland not ;) I mean the palm; we Pole prepare palms with pussy willows, some flowers etc. And I had such palm; and at my parish only (sometimes) the iconostasis and entrance are decorated with real palm, while people get a few branches of pussy willow; but this year everybody received such "true" palms ;)

Mina obviously has a favorite feast day.
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.

This is my first time trying the Palm tie. Credit goes to one of my little cousins Anastasia for this one.

So, in Upper Egypt, do they use palm weavings for their prom tuxedos and dresses the way American Rednecks use duct tape?   ;)

We have a rule with palms in our family.  You're only allowed to use palms.  No staples, no tapes, just palms (and scissors).

If Upper Egyptians have Palm tuxedos, I would so get one!  I'd probably just get the blazer though.

Isn't there a part when an off-duty cop comes in and shoots a guy in a motorcycle helmet?  ;)

I can see half my face there. I think the whole clergy of the PAOC in Rio is present in this picture.

"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

Probably for many of you is something usual, but for us in Poland not ;) I mean the palm; we Pole prepare palms with pussy willows, some flowers etc. And I had such palm; and at my parish only (sometimes) the iconostasis and entrance are decorated with real palm, while people get a few branches of pussy willow; but this year everybody received such "true" palms ;)


Yeah, our parish did the same.  Just palms this year.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

That's what I was doing, yes.
