I'm reviving this old thread to post a picture of the statue of Abune Petros, from an article about the statue being moved:

Such a remarkable man.  May he pray for us all.

Amen, amen, amen.

I hope that the moving of this statue is not politically motivated.

Let us continue to pray for Ethiopia and for our Tewahedo Church.

'Lord have mercy.'

"Bad art may be forgiven; but to remain unmoved by beauty will not. Doubts may be forgiven; but a lack of wonder will not. Tilting at windmills may be forgiven; but allowing our neighbors to be grinded in the gears will not. Denying the existence of the Creator may be forgiven; but ignoring the glories of creation will not."
