I feel like this is some scene from the cartoon hit series the Boondocks
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.

Astounding accurate.
"For what shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his soul?" - Mark 8:36 (DRA)

O Holy God, have mercy on us! All ye holy ones in heaven, pray for us!

How playful he is, our sweet baby God!

Basically how modernist Roman Catholicism is.
"Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." (St. Manuel II Palaiologos)

"Do not be ashamed to enter again into the Church. Be ashamed when you sin. Do not be ashamed when you repent." (St. John Chrysostom)

"Now one cannot be a half-hearted Christian, but only entirely or not at all." (Fr. Seraphim Rose)

Kids in Catholic school wish the nuns looked like this.

Worship is theology, so a church which brings Evangelical and Charismatic "praise & worship" into its corporate life is no longer Orthodox.  It is, by definition, heterodox.  Those "Orthodox" leaders who make theological arguments for the incorporation of heteropraxis into the life of the Church are heretics.

Why's the nun in profile holding a fish? Is it the annual Lenten Sky Surfing with Bouquets Fish Fry?
A symbol of the ICHTYS ?...

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

FatherGiryus, with all due respect, Jonathan Swift didn't really intend this pamphlet as a "modest proposal."

Good idea. I was thinking it represented fasting during lent, the palms of Palm Sunday are on the right. The nuns aren't wearing rings so they must be Orthodox. I do not understand the rose garlands (they are too large to be [Hesychastic] bridal crowns) nor the tribute to Mark Patterson's mosaic of the Virgin of Guadalupe (surfboard).

I've heard similar stories concerning some of Dr. King's extramarital improprieties and some scandalous accusations concerning A.L.F. and the location of Paul Fusco's mitts relative to his posterior.  Nevertheless, their lights still shine in our dim and weary world.  Selah!
