I'm both roman and eastern, i'm Romanian Orthodox. Keep trying to be like us  ;D

More roman than the actual citizens of the actual city of Rome who belong to Church of actual Rome? 8)
 :P


That poor fellow has his picture posted everywhere. If he ever made an account on this forum, I'm sure he would be quite alarmed.
at what?
At how many times his photograph is posted. I'm sure he doesn't have any idea how popular he is.

His Grace is quite popular and very much loved in Romania. I know people who affectionately refer to him as "Pope" Silouan or "Our Pope".

Make that, I'm sure he doesn't have any idea how popular he is in the English-speaking world.

Come to think of it, I think His Grace now has more Romanians in Italy than the Vatican has in Romania.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Just realized that besides really bad joke there is also something actually strange in this. Why Romanians are enthusiastic about an Italian bishop? Has he been a bishop of some Romanian diocese within actual Romania at some point?

No, he has been in Italy his entire episcopal career.

Romanians are enthusiastic about Italians in general-they are described as "Italian wanna be"s.

Wich is not entirely false, but we could add the admiration we used to have for the french. We are the italians of the east  ;D ;D
Romania,striga tare sa te aud
Romania,noi suntem Leii din Sud
Si din mormant voi striga,Stiinta e echipa mea
De te nasti aici si cresti,ramai Anti'Bucuresti
