Thank God!  It's way overdo.
Men may dislike truth, men may find truth offensive and inconvenient, men may persecute the truth, subvert it, try by law to suppress it. But to maintain that men have the final power over truth is blasphemy, and the last delusion. Truth lives forever, men do not.

Amen! I'm so encouraged by this - it seems like all of the news that comes out of Upper Egypt is about church burnings, the killing of priests, et cetera. It's great to hear about Muslims standing up for their neighbors' rights.

"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
