While I was meditating one night I was given a revelation.  I found that if you put a night stand or something of the sort in the corner, you can actually lean the Icons up against the wall and not have to drill any holes at all!  They just stand there as if they are held up by their very Holy nature!  I put my four Icons up against the wall - Our Lord and Savoir, the Blessed Theotokos, St. Nicholas and St. Joseph.  My bottle of holy water is in the corner, and the censor and candle go in front.

Best of all, my new room is larger so I could put the bed in the middle and now my Glock and deodorant have their own shelf apart from the Icons and religious bits!

Not had a lot of time to follow stuff around here.

Clicked on Nick's tumblr Herman link:

And saw this:



Literal LOL!

This is one of the best.

FR,

I presume you're referring to the 'presbyter' and 'temple' posts. I'm not at all sure that Hyperdox Herman and Uninformed Urban are always different individuals. I've known more than one Hyperdox Herman or Hermionie who was steeped in the words of the Saints and looked down on any who couldn't quote extensively from them, but hadn't a clue about the everyday life of an Eastern Christian. 

Many years,

Neil

Only to an extent. Thinking oneself to be educated is also a big part of it.

I don't get the righteous anger. The memes don't say "I fast", "I pray", "I attend services," "I try to follow the canons to the best of my ability". They say "I fast, but judge", "I attend services, but don't understand what they're for," "I judge those who don't follow the canons I adhere to, but dismiss the canons that don't suit me." If people don't find them funny, that's understandable - it's geeky humour - but the vast majority of the memes are definitely not a mockery of traditional piety and as such should be fairly ignorable, even for the most demanding inquisitor.

I've been Orthodox my entire life. I have seen all kinds of Orthodox. I don't get his issue with them unless...he's not understanding it. That's the only possible thing I can understand for him to be so upset with it. It's one thing to not like it or find it funny. Okay. Everyone has they're own sense of humor, but to be this upset about it? It really seems like he's missing the point of these.

This criticism on Facebook is so Hyperdox Herman... seriously, Islam shows what happens if you cannot laugh about yourself and/or your religion. So I am very happy we have Hyperdox Herman and I wish him многая літа (many years).
