Thank you for your replies!

Quick unrelated question, without escaping from the topic, since I am not here for a long time and do not understand OC.net subculture, why do people make fun of Alpha60 sometimes?, does he writes a lot?

I remember reading somewhere that someone wrote "the Alpha60 post to end all Alpha60 posts".
"It is logical that the actions of the human race over time will lead to its destruction.  I, Alpha 60, am merely the agent of this destruction."

- The computer Alpha 60, from Alphaville (1964) by Jean Luc Godard, the obvious inspiration for HAL-9000 from 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Attempt to get a rise out of the general membership: failed. (I did think his ex-wife giving him away was cute, though. Doesn't get more 'good riddance' than that. ;D)

All of these:
That must be the Theotokos in the thing the angel is holding on the left. Is that St. Philip on the right?

Nah, that there is the Lord Jesus Christ.

you can tell by the halo its has got a cross inside of it!

That’s good to know!  I just asked the icon and heard a voice identify itself, but your method is much easier.

oh, you always make me chuckle Mor Ephrem.

Why do you laugh at his God-given abilities?

Please do not reveal the secret...

As a member of the Finnish Orthodox Church Outside Finland, I shall not.

French Orthodox Church Outside France, here!

Oh, no!  Vagante!
Russian Orthodox church  here!

But not Russian Orthodox Church A Broad - Agafangel!

The correct spelling is “Agathangel”, thank you very much.  ::)

If you’re going to be that guy, why not Agathangelos?

If that empire was Greek, hell yeah.
All along the watchtower, princes kept the view
While all the women came and went, barefoot servants, too
Outside in the distance a wildcat did growl
Two riders were approaching, the wind began to howl

Photos from the pope pontifical Liturgy presided by patriarch Tawadros in Rome:

Nice that the Pope used fake lions not to scandalise the Italian faithful with his mystical beast-taming abilities.

Only those pure in heart can see they are real lions.  Watch out!

Quote
The papacy currently is

experiencing the effects of nearly two centuries of Freemasonic plots for infiltration and a century of Communist hatred. Bella Dodd, a former Communist converted by Abp. Fulton Sheen, testified to the latter before the U.S. Congress; "the Catholic Church", she said in the 50s, "is the enemy most feared by the Communists because it is its most effective opponent. In the 1930s, we put 1300 men into the priesthood to destroy the Church from within. Right now, they are in the highest ranks of the Church. The changes will be so great that you will not recognize the Church"; and you can read the Alta Vendita by John Vennari to find out about the former. Long ago Sr. Catherine Emmerich explicitly foretold, after saying Lucifer would be released from hell about 60 years before 2000 A.D. "I saw in this place [Rome] how the Church of Peter [also Rome] is being so cleverly subverted by a plan laid by the secret sect [Masonry]".

And Our Lady of Good Success said, specifically mentioning the 20th century several centuries ago, "Masonry, which will then be in power, will enact iniquitous laws with the intention of doing away with this Sacrament [of matrimony]" and so on for the other sacraments. "Those whom the merciful love of My most holy Son has destined for that restoration will need great courage and strength of will, because there will be moments when all will seem to be lost. This, then will be the beginning of the complete restoration ... when I in a marvelous way will dethrone the proud and accursed Satan and cast him into the abyss". The hour of Mary's Triumph, the Church's restoration and the re-union of the Churches will come soon.

Xavier, are you in communion with Pope Francis, or do you belong to a different Roman Catholic group?

He’s in communion, but he #resists.

No matter how much you love me, I love you Mor. :P

The discernment is very very very simple.
Did you build a Universe? No
Did the people that teach you build a Universe? No.
Somebody that build a Universe in which you are was asked if Catholic or Orthodox are better Church and showed Eastern Orthodox  to be better.
If you or people that teach you have anything to say against somebody that build a Universe, please build a Universe first so we know you know what you are saying.

Complaining about "ethnic" parishes and then asking him to elevate "Western heritage" above the Gospel... that's what the kids call "epic fail".
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

It will have all the notes and characteristics of the Church, but in reverse and emptied of its divine content. It will be a mystical body of the Antichrist that will in all externals resemble the mystical body of Christ. . .

Pretty good description of the child predator syndicate centered in the Vatican.

Sticky this quote somehow in the Orthodox-RC discussions subforum, please.
"The business of the Christian is nothing else than to be ever preparing for death (μελεπᾷν ἀποθνήσκειν)."

— Saint Irenaeus of Lyons, Fragment XI

Modernist thinking and being consists of nothing but uncritical acceptance.
