She hears, upon that water without sound,
A voice that cries, “The tomb in Palestine
Is not the porch of spirits lingering.
It is the grave of Jesus, where he lay.”
We live in an old chaos of the sun,
Or old dependency of day and night,
Or island solitude, unsponsored, free,
Of that wide water, inescapable.

Perhaps he has repented.  ;)

In other news, Fr. Andrew really likes airports, or so it would seem.

Quote from: Fr. Thomas Hopko, dystopian parable of the prodigal son
...you can imagine so-called healing services of the pigpen. The books that could be written, you know: Life in the Pigpen. How to Cope in the Pigpen. Being Happy in the Pigpen. Surviving in the Pigpen. And then there could be counselling, for people who feel unhappy in the pigpen, to try to get them to come to terms with the pigpen, and to accept the pigpen.

he was mugged by Gypsies as he got out of a church in Bucharest that's the only interesting detail in all that long talk.

Prophetic dreams... We all know how entertaining those can be, for all the wrong reasons.
Be comforted, and have faith, O Israel, for your God is infinitely simple and one, composed of no parts.

What's everyone bashing him for? Sure he believed things were stupid and his comments appear odd and silly at times, but he is in the process of coming home. You should remember the parable of the lost coin. This man has repented and is coming to the truth. You should be happy for him and welcome your new brother instead of staying stuck-up and arrogant with this stupid cliche system that is so prevalent in ethnic Orthodox Churches. I'm a Protestant convert and to be honest, maybe it is your rudeness that keeps so many people from converting to Orthodoxy.

To tell you the truth i'm just jealous: I've been Orthodox for a bit longer than this guy and AFR hasn't contacted me for an interview yet.
