What's up with the wig?

Yeah, I got a haircut a few hours later.
I meant your hair looked a lot lighter in older photos

Don't you know?  Our dear Cyrillic is either going to be part of the English Court or cast in the new season of Downton Abbey!  So he needs to get an English aristocratic wife or an excellent casting agent (since the series is over anyway).

Visiting the Russian mission is always heartwarming, there are always more and more faces and youth. It's a very small and young parish, but people are very active.

I was curious to know something.  Your name is "Ahmad".  Were you Muslim before?  Do you have a baptism name?

Thank you. I'm happy for that.
Yes my real name and I didn't change it for my baptist name.   It is not my nickname or something should be hidden of.
since St. Ahmed Calligrapher and St. Seraphim Sarov are Saints glorified in our Orthodox church.
There are also several Orthodox in my country with baptist name Ahmed/ Ahmad

Well, as having non-Polish surname in Polish society (and especially with no Polish letters) is still something strange, I'm used to mispelling and bad pronunciation of my surname. Actually, the whole education I was waiting excited for new teachers checking the list to have a possibility to correct them. Well, only in the Polish Orthodox Church at various occassions my surname is spelled and said rather correctly (sometimes even with the proper accent).

However, this one is particularly badly and strangely written, as the first half seems to be Serbian spelling (without one proper sign) and the second one Polish spelling  :laugh:

Phoenicians brought them here. Apparently they were later identified with Apollo, Juno and Aphrodite. I wonder if there is any Hellenic Jewish polemics about Baal-worshippers persecuting them again in the Roman empire. Interesting to see how different cults seem to have mixed with the indigenous cults in the Greco-Roman sphere.

Visiting the Russian mission is always heartwarming, there are always more and more faces and youth. It's a very small and young parish, but people are very active.



Wow, more people than I expected, they seem to be nice folks.

They are! You must be aware of Fr. Marcelo's missionary work, he attracts many people.
