My son and his friend and I went to say prayers at the cemetery today.

Very commendable. Sometimes prayer for the dead seems somewhat unemphasized amongst convertodoxy. Silly White people have forgotten about death.
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
Leviticus 19:34

Death hasn't forgotten about them.
Mor Ephrem is a nice guy.  Just say sorry and it will all be ok. Say I had things that were inside troubling me but I didn't know how to express appropriately. I will not behave that way again but I am seeking help.

thank you so much Mor ephrem you are a hero!

Death never forgets.
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.

So true.

I have to confess to always having a slight crush on Dominika; predating both these pics and her promotion to the upper echelons of the OCNet moderation team.

Well, I guess I just like the way you write and what you have to say; it is indicative of a loving and  pious nature.  :)

Indeed, the Philokalia reduced into one sentence.

  If it would help I could falsely accuse you of heresy.   I could falsely allege, by cherry picking your posts, that you are in fact and entirely unbeknownst to yourself, a thoroughly committed disciple of Valentinus.  Because one Ogdoad of Aeons is never enough.  ;) :P

Myself and, at my right, my godson Teodoro just after his chrismation by Fr. Roman. I'm not short at all, the guy is almost 2 meter tall (6'6'' in barbarian).



You're older and rather more dapper than I had imagined.  I've always respected you as one of the best contributors to this forum, but now with the added plus that you in appearance remind me of my elegant Spanish-American friend Frank, who is a grand and elegant gentleman from the ethnically Spanish community of the Florida Keys.   Alas he is not Orthodox but a Freemason of Deist persuasion (a "comparative religionist"); we can't win them all sadly.  However, he is a first class human being.

Anyhow when God was asked he said Eastern Orthodox is true Church and not Catholic Church. So come home and enjoy.

You're older and rather more dapper than I had imagined.  I've always respected you as one of the best contributors to this forum, but now with the added plus that you in appearance remind me of my elegant Spanish-American friend Frank, who is a grand and elegant gentleman from the ethnically Spanish community of the Florida Keys.   Alas he is not Orthodox but a Freemason of Deist persuasion (a "comparative religionist"); we can't win them all sadly.  However, he is a first class human being.
I hadn't read this, very sweet, thanks.  :)  I'm the guy in green, BTW, just to make sure.

NEVER MIND.
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.

Have you started reading it? I didn't really like it (I'm talking about the book, the picture looks great  ;D ).

"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."

Anyhow when God was asked he said Eastern Orthodox is true Church and not Catholic Church. So come home and enjoy.

Yep, I've read it yesterday (or actaully this night, as it was 3 AM):

Comic book The Arab of the Future (the 1st part) by Riad Sattouf.

Nicely drawn, interesting observations of a child born from French mother and Syrian father of Libia, France and Syria (well, manily its rural areas) of the late 70s and early 80s. At first glancve it seems quite scarrying. But ten I realised that at that time in Poland there was Martial Law in Poland, and Serbian villages were probaly not so far in look and mentality to the Serian ones.

I liked the drawings, the whole idea, various details presented in different ways... But sometimes it's too dark, presenting Arbs only from bad perspective. I'd like to see more light sides of the story, of the people that he presents. The next two books of the trilogy are still not translated into Polish, so I have to wait to see, if he changes the style a bit.

Oh, that's sad. So, it seems that he, being of Arab descent, is more anti-Arabic than non-Arabs.

Not anti-Arab, but anti-political pan-Arab mentality that rose out after the 1950s, very much embodied by Qadafi in Libya.

Thank you! So nice to put faces to the forum's voices.
"Love ... is an abyss of illumination, a mountain of fire ... . It is the condition of angels, the progress of eternity" (Climacus).

Quote from: Seekingtrue
Yes we who are far from sainthood we can recognize a living saint and I'm talking from personal experience.Yes they are gentle soo gentle it can not be described it is like gentleness and humility in one and also they have this light this energy it's beyond words...and when you are near them you feel ecstatic and very happy
