S/he's got good taste.

From left to right: Syriac Orthodox Patriarch Mor Ignatius Yaqub (Jacob) III, Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser, Coptic Orthodox Pope Kyrillos (Cyril) VI, and the late HIM Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia.



I really like this photo. Shame about the poor quality, though.

Probably shortly before 1970. I don't know the exact date, sorry.

I agree, about Pope St. Cyril, though. :)

I kind of like that. A lot more that the usual Protestant "iconography". At least it doesn't include anything goofy.
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.

I'm not sure, to be honest. I think it's in Romania.

It is indeed in Romania, but I didn't see anywhere on the site which specifies where or what particular church. He also has this image though:
