The difference between Poland and Belarus is simply a matter of how much fuel I need for my tank.

Thank you!  Interesting... he spent time here in America.

How was he martyred?  Nazis or communists?


Is there hagiographic material available on these saints in English?

Try here: http://www.lublin.cerkiew.pl/page.php?id=338

AFAIR now 10th anniversary of their glorification is being celebrated.

Oh it's a Lutheran church!

Truth be told I really can't tell a Catholic church from a Lutheran church in the United States because few more contemporary churches follow any sort of architecture it seems to me. For example last year when I stayed with my three best friends in the summer home of one of them, my friends were kind enough to make Sunday our trip into the next city over, (not so) coincidentally where the Orthodox church is. Along the way we drove by a Catholic, Lutheran, and Episcopalian church, all of whom used nigh-identical Floridian architecture for their exterior.

Might I ask, does anyone know how to tell the difference between a Catholic church and High Church Lutheran church? It seems like with Anglican churches, they have the altar protrude from the wall where the Platytera would be, there's a railing where the faithful kneel to receive communion, and there are pews that face the sides near the altar that are raised a bit and farther away from the pews that face the altar where most of the congregation would sit. At least, that's sort of what it looks like from my perspective, as a former Anglicanophile who's only really visited four churches and a cathedral. What are some cues in order to tell what you're looking at is a High Church Lutheran, or any type of Lutheran church at all?

Well, at least in Denmark, it's very easy. Catholic churches have a free-standing altar and a high altar or, in the case of new church buildings, just one free-standing altar. Lutheran churches only have have a high altar, often with an altarpiece.

Interesting. I've thought Danish Lutherans are fairly low church. Finnish Lutherans often have this arrangement of two altars.

Our liturgy is (in most cases) very low liturgical, but we never got that second altar.

This is the church in my villlage.

That's beautiful! Add some icons and it would be fit for Orthodox mass.

When I am inside a church, I always try to imagine how the it would look like if I removed the pews and installed an iconostasis.  :P

You're not too far off. There's actually a type of liturgy in Orthodoxy that uses the High Church Lutheran (I've never said that phrase so many times in my life up until the last hour  :D) liturgy as its basis, and there are a few churches in the United States that use it.
