Here's a video about the Armenian cathedral. Hope it's the right clip. :)

Would you be able to find the video again and post it?

Found it:

Another Armenian question.  I was watching this, which I presume to be the consecration video of the Armenian Cathedral in Moscow.  I will provide the link, but just in case the link does not redirect clearly, there is a part of the video, starting around 11:30, where the Catholicos takes dove statue.  I'm taking an educated guess and say that's what we call the "Myron" oil coming out of it (and an interesting touch with the use of the wings being spread as it is poured).  Am I correct?  When did this tradition begin?  Is it supposed to be an iconographic representation of the Holy Spirit?  What is he and the choir chanting as he pours from it three times?

Really cool gathering and the Catholicos' (left) beard and mustache are outstanding.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Fantastic!  This has to be from the Addis Ababa Conference.  Where'd you find it?
Worship is theology, so a church which brings Evangelical and Charismatic "praise & worship" into its corporate life is no longer Orthodox.  It is, by definition, heterodox.  Those "Orthodox" leaders who make theological arguments for the incorporation of heteropraxis into the life of the Church are heretics.

Here are some pictures from the local Coptic Church.









The icons are by the hand of Fr. Theodore Jurewicz, who is an archpriest of the ROCOR.

I love the fact that a ROCOR priest is painting icons for the local Coptic Church.  :)

It looks like a cross-bread between Greek and Neo-Coptic types.  I like Jurewiczian iconography  ;)
