Reminds me of one of my parakeets, Nina, I had when I was a kid.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

I'm not going to be posting as much on OC.Net as before. I might stop in once in a while though. But I've come to realize that real life is more important.

My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river

It couldn't be a motorcycle, you would see the track of the front wheel and the track of the back wheel because when you turn the tracks don't line up.

I read somewhere that it's not right to cross one's arms like that when approaching the chalice (and, now that I think of it, I don't think anybody here does it). Is this a jurisdictional thing?

I haven't had that much fun reading a thread in a while...
Mor Ephrem is a nice guy.  Just say sorry and it will all be ok. Say I had things that were inside troubling me but I didn't know how to express appropriately. I will not behave that way again but I am seeking help.

thank you so much Mor ephrem you are a hero!

Unfortunately.  The Panjshir Valley is full of beauty and serenity, but still not oblivious to the death and destruction that is so common in Afghanistan.

As someone who owns parakeets, how do you get them to sit still let alone wrap them up in a towel?  Also in the other picture they appear to be free in a shopping mall. How do you get them to stand on a skateboard rather than biting in to them? These are mysteries.
If you cannot remember everything, instead of everything, I beg you, remember this without fail, that not to share our own wealth with the poor is theft from the poor and deprivation of their means of life; we do not possess our own wealth but theirs.  If we have this attitude, we will certainly offer our money; and by nourishing Christ in poverty here and laying up great profit hereafter, we will be able to attain the good things which are to come. - St. John Chrysostom

Bishop Shenouda on the day of his enthronement to the papacy. Noting, as always, how awesome Coptic bishops used to look when they wore all their vestments.
"He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust." --Psalm 91: 1-2
