Vhegars, kolonsowas, and eskimos:  “welcoming monks to the hood since the third century”

Anyone ever seen the actual hat under the cowl in a vhegar?  Pretty cool.
I'm with the camp of 13 million Americans that believe politicians are, or are controlled by, Reptilians. I think only monks can solve this problem. It doesn't seem right that they prefer to ignore it.

From today's burial of HG Zachariah Mor Theophilos, Metropolitan of Malabar (16 September 1952 - 24 October 2017). 
How this relates to the coming Antichrist? I don't know...

It's basically just this, but often a bit smaller/with less of a brim (for lack of better term).



Usually it's even simpler than that, and often collapsable so it can be folded in half. Kind of weird to see it sitting somewhere in the vestry if your priest happens to be celibate.

Yup.  Like I said, pretty cool.  :)

These two Alexandrian Orthodox popes always look so cheerful when they meet each other ;)

It's like there's an estranged Pope family and two brothers who live near each other are rebuilding family bonds and settling peace with each other while the third brother insists he's better than everyone because he's rich and lives in Europe.
"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."

Can someone explain this tradition in the Syriac Orthodox Church on Epiphany of coverind and then uncovering an altar boy in front of the holy water?
