Help in Skype
« on: June 02, 2016, 09:01:16 PM »
I have this important English exam coming up next week and I'm a bit nervous about my conversational skills... It might help to chat a little bit until then, so I was wondering if someone in my favourite English-language spot in the internet could talk through Skype audio some day.  :P  Please PM me if you can. I'm in UTC -3 and I'd better not use Skype while everyone else home is sleeping (more or less one or two hours from now), but otherwise I have a lot of time for that, today and the other days too.
Only-begotten Son and Logos of God, being immortal, you condescended for our salvation to take flesh from the holy Theotokos and ever-virgin Mary and, without change, became man. Christ, our God, you were crucified and conquered death by death. Being one with the Holy Trinity, glorified with the Father and the Holy Spirit: save us.

I don't use Skype, otherwise I'd be interested in helping you out.

Too bad I'll miss an opportunity to find out your real accent!

Imagine the sexiest accent you can.





























It's better than that.

Mor is the Indian version of 'The most interesting man in the world'....


maybe not that the actual most interesting man appears to have gone to mars....they are looking for a new guy for the ads?

No one in this forum can be more difficult to understand than the excited Scotsmen those university motherkissers always fit into the listening test. The exicited I am a bit hard to understand even in my native language, though.

I can visualise it.

No way.

Note CGI St. Basil's Church...where Mor's heart truly lies.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

I eventually talked to an American guy from an Orthodox Facebook group, I was relieved that the conversation flowed well and he understood my accent perfectly. My test will be tomorrow, I'm a bit worried but I feel safe. Please pray for me.

It wasn't today, actually. The worrysome speaking test is Friday, but tomorrow will be tiring and demanding. Please do pray for me, the expectations are driving me crazy.

No, I will not pray for you, and I would be grateful if you would stop trying to influence my spiritual practices or else I am going to have to kick your Sure thing.

All this time, I didn't realize the church

Prayers of the Theotokos and St. Mina be with you Rapha!
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

I opened OrthodoxChristianity in the waiting room computer and the browser suggested a Traditionalist RC blog as soon as I typed "o". Religious tension in the air.

Thanks for the prayers!

I screwed up yesterday, we had to do two c. 300-words pieces of writing and I could only do one and a half. Sucks, but maybe I can still pass.
