Don't you feel anyhow uncomfortable with sharing that much personal information about yourself on internet?

I don't really think anyone from here would go there. Thank you for your concern, though.

I have the same feeling.
BTW, I've heard a bit similar rhyme fo whipping each other by palms: Nie martwcie się chrześcijanie, bo Pan Jezus po trzech dniach z grobu wstanie or something like that, in English: Do not worry, o Christians, as the Lord Jesus on the third day will arise (I'm not so talented to create a rhyme in English with the same sense)

I don't think it's the people from this forum any one is worried about.

What's with the hat? Romanian priests wear fedoras instead of kamilavka?



Interesting choice of architecture. The WRO would be jealous.

Similar churches can be easily found in Serbia ;) Didn't know, that in Romania such churches exist ;)
However, as for Serbia, I prefer our specific Serbian-byzantine church architecture

Maybe it's - you know - "the" walk - the one to the bacon factory.

Augustin, love the pictures. Are these just daily life shots from near where you live?
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Thanks. They are very recent, as in a couple weeks old. They are from some small villages along the Crisul Alb valley, in the county of Arad.
