An imposter.  His key is not large enough for the postbox keyhole.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

I don't know if he's an imposter, but I do like the Santa at the top. I think every Santa should wear a Christmas-tree-hat, a big medallion, and do Judo chops.

A skull drawn by Elder Arsenie Papacioc. The inscription says: "Blessed are those who die for the Christian love -- The only liberation! If only one person keeps the truth, The Church is there. Orthodoxy will survive through him!"

Oh yes. He was very big in Romania having gone through the communist prisons. He died at 90-something a few years ago. Just now realized the name is Papa-Cioc. "Cioc" means "beak" in Romanian. So that would make him Elder Papa-Beak. However, I have no idea what the name really means in Romanian.

I wonder what kitty is thinking.

Is it just me, or does the rightmost skull on the second ledge have eyes?
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
