May the 21 new martyrs pray for us all.

Please, remember me in your prayers

Lord, protect Egypt, Syria, Lebanon & Iraq.

That ecumencial heretic!

Hey I was there! I was on the left side just off camera :D
But yeah, it was a pretty great speech by +Kallistos; though I had to leave before I could get a chance to talk with him afterwards :(

Is it customary to sing the Palm Sunday hymn whenever a bishop enters (i.e. was he received like an OO bishop would be)? If so, very cool!

If you spend long enough on this forum, you'll come away with all sorts of weird, untrue ideas of Orthodox Christianity.

That was a very charming story, he's such a humble man.


Thanks, Severian for sharing that.
