The Orientals should have called themselves the Standing Meeting of Oriental Orthodox Christians (SMOOCH)

Is this an ecumenical event? It sounds like it if they are celebrating vespers.

The fact that both SCOBA and SCOOCH refer to themselves as standing is very appropriate for Orthodox Christians!  ;)

My Russian mother-in-law once said that one thing she likes about RC churches is the presence of pews! (Hey, give her a break: she's getting too old to be standing up all the time).  ;D
The first condition of salvation is to keep the norm of the true faith and in no way to deviate from the established doctrine of the Fathers.
