I think so.

There's Metropolitan Jeronymos of Mwanza, Archbishop Jonah of Kampala and All Uganda and now, Bishop Innocent of Burundi and Rwanda.

Beautiful!  Africa was the continent that sheltered Christ when He fled from Herod.  It is my personal belief that as the West rejects Him it will be that continent which accepts Him once more.

Are you allergic to bright colors? What's the big deal?

You may want different colors, but I'd cook, I don't see a problem.

Um, I was just trying to say it's okay if you don't like it. I don't want to pick on you or something. We all like different stuff. Besides, all I know how to make is cereal and burnt sandwiches.  :-[

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

LOL!

If the image is somewhere on the Web, just right click and select "copy image URL".  Then in your post click the little blue photo icon (second icon from the left, second row (under the italic icon)), and right click - paste.  Then Post.  Nothing to it.  :)

So, it rained all day yesterday....and then on my drive home from work....the clouds started to break up. 

To me it looked like God had pulled out his paintbrushes and created a masterpiece.

I kept looking out the side window so much in awe, that I feared I'd drive off the road.  I finally pulled over and took a few photos.  It all vanished quickly, as the wind was strong, and the sun was setting fast....but, how pretty it was while it lasted!

^ that's a good one. And when there was the previous conclave (in 2005), I even didn't have the Internet at home...


Our Serbian bishops probably like celebrating Divine Liturgy under some sunshades with an advertisment of a beer (Lav, after Jelen, is the most famous Serbian beer), becasue, as you probably remember, I've found a picture with a Serbian bishop celebrating Liturgy under Carlsberg parasol. Here you have metropolitan of Montenegro Amfilohije:
