I think so.

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

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.  Smiley

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!

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:
