10 Signs Your Bishop is a "Vagante"

Ten warning signs your "bishop" might not be a real one:

10. He refers to himself as Metropolitan Archbishop (of course, it would be better to add something like Catholicos to the mix as well, but one's creative powers must needs be directed elsewhere--such as web design and a clever cover-up operation)...
"The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny--it is the light that guides your way." - Heraclitus

That is the title the Antiochian Archbishop of Australia uses:

It's very confusing here (and the US) because Antiochian and Slavic Churches, a Metropolitan outranks an Archbishop, but in Greek tradition, an Archbishop outranks a Metropolitan- and you can't be both.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
