I personally think of His Grace as "bishop of the press"  :)
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.

Quote
(A) Statue of Blessed R.Z. Noronha was found today, July 5th 2016, lying on the Arabian sea shore, at Kodi - Sastana, a place 10 kms away from Brahmavar. It was bought on July 4th 2016 afternoon to the sea shore by a fisherman Vasudeva Karvy, who found it floating on the sea. He was able to recognize that it was of some Christian Priest, so he made a call to local Roman Catholic priest, who sent parishioners to make an enquiry into the matter. Sooner, a few of the parishioners were able to identify it as Fr. Noronha's statue. They made a call to the trustee of St. Thomas Orthodox Syrian Church, Sastan , Mr. Clement D'silva, who informed the Parish Priest Fr. Noel Lewis. Fr. Lewis along with Fr. Lawrence Dsouza, Fr. Abraham Kuriakose, Mr. Anil Rodrigues, Mr. Clement D'silva, Mr. Kishore Dias, Mr. Lucas Dsouza, Mr. Moses rodrigues, Mr. Lawrence D'almeida, Mr. Joseph Rodrigues and Mr. Johnson Rodrigues arrived at the spot and made arrangements to take it to St. Mary's Orthodox Syrian Cathedral, Brahmavar where he is entombed.

The statue was carried in procession from the Gates of St. Mary's Cathedral to the parsonage. Fr. C.A. Isac (Vicar General) along with other priests offered incense. Many of the faithful were present.

Extremely interesting.

I didn't know you guys had Portuguese surnames. I thought this was strictly a Goan thing.

Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

Photos from the 'Familienfest', a special day for families organized at Mor Jacob of Sarough Monastery in Warburg, Germany.  An estimated number of 4000 people attended the Familienfest from different parts of Germany and the Netherlands.  Clergy from other OO Churches in Germany and the Netherlands also attended.

From the outdoor "Divine Liturgy"

Was it not really a Divine Liturgy?

Your use of quotation marks implied something else.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.
