Thank you for sharing it! Amazing pictures.

I wonder how long are the Liturgy of Epiphany and the service of blessing the water in the Ethiopian Church as in its sister Coptic Church it lasts so long... And what's more, Ethiopians and Eritreans are known by their Liturgies lasting a few hours...
Pray for persecuted Christians, especially in Serbian Kosovo and Raška, Egypt and Syria
