My son and his friend and I went to say prayers at the cemetery today.

Very commendable. Sometimes prayer for the dead seems somewhat unemphasized amongst convertodoxy. Silly White people have forgotten about death.
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
Leviticus 19:34

Death hasn't forgotten about them.
Please don't project meta-debates onto me.

Death never forgets.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

So true.

Yes we who are far from sainthood we can recognize a living saint and I'm talking from personal experience.Yes they are gentle soo gentle it can not be described it is like gentleness and humility in one and also they have this light this energy it's beyond words...and when you are near them you feel ecstatic and very happy

The rest is: I'm waiting for a husband ;p

I'm sure many candidates are looking carefully at these photos as we speak, earnestly desiring to be globally moderated.

I have to confess to always having a slight crush on Dominika; predating both these pics and her promotion to the upper echelons of the OCNet moderation team.

Well, I guess I just like the way you write and what you have to say; it is indicative of a loving and  pious nature.  :)

So nice words, thank you! Anyway, if I'm of pious nature, I have to struggle with my pride ;)

All opinions expressed by myself are quite tragically my own, and not those of any other poster or wall hangings.

Indeed, the Philokalia reduced into one sentence.

  If it would help I could falsely accuse you of heresy.   I could falsely allege, by cherry picking your posts, that you are in fact and entirely unbeknownst to yourself, a thoroughly committed disciple of Valentinus.  Because one Ogdoad of Aeons is never enough.  ;) :P

That is definitely well within the realm of creepiness!   :o

Myself and, at my right, my godson Teodoro just after his chrismation by Fr. Roman. I'm not short at all, the guy is almost 2 meter tall (6'6'' in barbarian).



You're older and rather more dapper than I had imagined.  I've always respected you as one of the best contributors to this forum, but now with the added plus that you in appearance remind me of my elegant Spanish-American friend Frank, who is a grand and elegant gentleman from the ethnically Spanish community of the Florida Keys.   Alas he is not Orthodox but a Freemason of Deist persuasion (a "comparative religionist"); we can't win them all sadly.  However, he is a first class human being.
