I remember him...
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

"Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no schisms among you; but that you be perfect in the same mind, and in the same judgment...
Now this I say, that every one of you saith: I indeed am of Paul; and I am of Apollo; and I am of Cephas; and I of Christ...
Is Christ divided? Was Paul then crucified for you? or were you baptized in the name of Paul?"

I've been asking this in Portuguese for years, so I'm sure God understands Russian too.

I have a book being in fact one very long interview with him, and exatly this picture is used on the cover.
Wow, which are the main themes? You can PM me if you'd rather not go on about it in this thread.

Russsian is a Slavonic language.

Actually, everything, as it was issued on the 75th birthday of the metropolitan and it's title "Talks about life and the Church". So it's about life of the metropolitan, the communism period in Poland, the beginnings of the Orthodox Youth Brotherhood in Poland, realations with the RC Church, Church media, Ukraine, Orthodox chaplains in the Polish army... It's easier to said what themes are not touched.

Pockets of Slavic Orthodoxy date back to the apostolic era, but  Ss. Cyril and Methodius are known for having planted the seeds for its identity and growth.

^^ beautiful, there is written in Polish "Pamiątka z Ostrej Bramy" - "Souvenir from Ostra Brama" (the name of the icon that's in Vilnus is "Ostrobramska")

Do you have Polish ancestors?

No but I do have Lithuanian ancestors who spoke Polish but they did not live in Vilnius were the ostrobramska is so I don't know how they got their hands on a souvenir from there!!!

So it's controversial if they were Poles, Lithuanians or even Rusyns.
Anyway, this icon is so popular in both Lithuania and Poland (not sure for Belarus), that having a souvenir of it from Vilnius is not surprising, even if they lived in other place than this city.

Saturn is a beautiful planet.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Serbia has problem with birthrate

"Mile" [it's Serbian name that also has connection with meaning of "pleasure", "nice". "Mile!!!". "There is no pleasure [mili] to be born".
