What's that staff? I think I've never seen it in here. Or is it a cheaper version of the regular episcopal staff?

That must be the new abbot.  His Grace Bishop Maxim is my bishop and he isn't in the photo.

The monk in the picture is Fr. Damascene. His staff is an abbot's staff, not an episcopal staff.



I wonder how Fr. Damascene's missionary work in China has progressed.
