This is an old photo of one of the joint OO liturgies. This one took place in East Brunswick, NJ. Notice the Syriac Archbishop at the left is now the Syriac Orthodox Patriarch.
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.
