The above post, Reply No. 26, is uncalled for and lacks civility, especially on a forum composed largely of fellow "pious and Orthodox Christians," as we are referred to liturgically. If it was written "tong in cheek" as an attempt at humor, I apologize for what I am writing in the next paragraph.
Maybe the poster would feel better if St. Nicholas was a Serbian Church, conducting the Divine Services in Church Slavonic and Serbian with minimal token English, celebrating holiday's of Serbian revolutionary military heroes, adorning the church grounds with their statutes. (I personally love all the Holy Eastern Orthodox Churches, and enjoy participation in Serbian Orthodox Church services in my area. One of their parish's devout priests concelebrates weddings and baptisms routinely at my Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America parish, at which I am the chanter, due to inter-parish marriages, but I feel compelled to make an analogous slam at the absurdity of the above post, which demonstates a lack of understanding and appreciation for the Orthodoxy and genuine spirituality of GOAA parishes.) By the way, I've never heard a word about Alexander the Great in a GOAA parish. Also, in my area, Serbs and Greeks work along side each other for pan-Orthodox concerns like IOCC.
Bishop Ireney of the Serbian Orthodox Diocese of Australia, who, while he was a priest, served for a time as the Sunday Liturgical Assistant in my GOAA parish, tells the folk tale of the Serb who was asked, "Who are your friends?" He responded, "I have only two friends, God and the Greeks."
Prior to its destruction, the church had a schedule for having the church open for prayer and candle lighting and many who were employed in the Wall Street area, not typically Orthodox Christians, took advantage of the spiritual opportunities afforded to the public in this tiny church.
