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

But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.

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.
