Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Adorable.
Indeed! What service is it?

Veneration of the Cross on Good Friday according to the Finndo-Armenian calendar.  ;)

This picture shows a unique Malankara tradition. It is called 'Vidyarambham' and is borrowed from the Hindu culture. 'Vidyarambham' means 'initiation of knowledge'. In this picture you can see a little girl with a white head scarf being initiated into the characters of the syllabary by the Abbot of Malekuriz Dayara ; Mor Dioscorus.  H.G is helping the little girl write with her fingers on a plate with rice.

Technically not OO photo. I believe they are Armenian Catholic clergy; taking photos with their cell phones; fully vested :)

I can't believe I never looked through this thread until now. Such beautiful pictures! Just looking through them, I'm reminded what drew me to Orthodoxy in general, and the Oriental communion in particular, in the first place. This is a blessing.

Am I wrong in thinking that this is a Georgian Easter greeting being imposed on a photo of an Armenian Orthodox Liturgy?  What a fail...

Unless the Armenians issued an Easter Greeting in Georgian, you are correct. Epic fail!

I like the red of those eggs... They're usually not that dark.

The trick is to use brown eggs.
