Yesterday a group of four Orthodox faithful plus a Roman Catholic friend of ours visited a pro-life mission outside Rio, which houses, feeds and teaches job skills to pregnant and parturient women. They are currently moving, we wish to visit them again at the new location. Please do pray for the mission, all the women supported by it, and that more women give up on aborting and join them.

"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."

Post-Lenten Pascha vibes. (No, it's not a blunt. Just a little clove cigar.)

Is this a cigarette or a cigarillo? I abandoned the first, but occasionally enjoy the latter, as well as cigars and snuff. I love tobacco, but hate inhaling smoke.

I looked like this, back in 1988.

I was visiting my brother at SUNY Purchase.

In his baby photos, my son looks like he could have been my twin at the same age. (Our only difference was that his hair is straight and mine was curly.) Everyone remarked that he didn't seem to take after his father at all. That side of the family resemblance surfaced as he grew, though he's still very much me around the eyes - not least because we both have brown eyes, while everyone else on his father's side has blue.

Huh. Maybe it just proves how disconnected I am from the norm, but my first thought seeing that would be something between "pirate" and "Gypsy," not "Muslim" heh.

And that's good you didn't land on your knees lol.

This. Once I've heard a question here, in Poland "Of what kind of Islam sect Orthodoxy is?". I've also heard that my neck cross is "so Catholic" or just that's Catholic (both from Caholics and Orthodox), beacause it doesn't have the diagonal bar.

It reminded be Bollywood film "My name is Khan".

1. I don't look like typical Polish. And if I wear scarf (actually, only for pilgriamges and sometimes in monasteries) and big earrings (almost always) I look for people so oriental
2. I'm Orthodox (it's so mysterious and conservative)
3. I have Arabic Orthodox applications on my phone and use my phone in Arabic

When I came in the evening of last Sunday from Grabarka to Warsaw and went to a shop to by bus ticket, the shop assistang was staring at me, as I was wearing as a head scarf something from India shop (plus, people do not dress like that in Warsaw), long skirt and traditional Romanian bluse, pluse had oriental gold earrings and my face was so sunburnt (my skin easily cahtes the Sun and ofc it's easier if you walk for 5 days in almost constant Sun the whole day and the enxt 2 days spend on lengthy services on the air). Actually, not only him. Well, at Grabarka I was looking quite normally. But when my father saw me, he said "You're looking as ain immigrant, if you said something in Arabic at shop, it would be evne more convincing".

LOL!  :laugh:

When I came in the evening of last Sunday from Grabarka to Warsaw and went to a shop to by bus ticket, the shop assistang was staring at me, as I was wearing as a head scarf something from India shop (plus, people do not dress like that in Warsaw), long skirt and traditional Romanian bluse, pluse had oriental gold earrings and my face was so sunburnt (my skin easily cahtes the Sun and ofc it's easier if you walk for 5 days in almost constant Sun the whole day and the enxt 2 days spend on lengthy services on the air). Actually, not only him. Well, at Grabarka I was looking quite normally. But when my father saw me, he said "You're looking as ain immigrant, if you said something in Arabic at shop, it would be evne more convincing".
I have a pointy nose, thick black hair, untannable white skin, there are two Orthodox Jewish synagogues in my neighbourhood, and when I'm asked my religion, I usually just say I'm Orthodox. I'm so often mistaken as belonging to a certain tribe that it kinda became a joke among friends, and many people end up actually thinking I'm a tribesman. I'm partly New Christian, though, I explained you what it ethnically means once.

Nice conotation, people are usually afraid that I'll throw my bag shouting "Allah akbar".

You get that reaction too, huh?

It reminded be Bollywood film "My name is Khan".

1. I don't look like typical Polish. And if I wear scarf (actually, only for pilgriamges and sometimes in monasteries) and big earrings (almost always) I look for people so oriental
2. I'm Orthodox (it's so mysterious and conservative)
3. I have Arabic Orthodox applications on my phone and use my phone in Arabic

Ah, ok. I see what you mean. I used to know an American guy online with distant Turkish ancestry who had to deal with some of the same things.
Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Amen.

On my cross (it's easy to guess, which one) there are written also the names/nicks of the oc.netters from the prayer thread I've opened some time ago :)



This may be the coolest OC.net pic ever!
