A day in the life of an Archbishop

People must have been saying, "What does Srpazan do all day?" because now there is a video showing a day in the life of Archbishop Hovnan:

That is really neat!  It would be pretty crazy living next door to an Archbishop.  It isn't like he lives in a palace or anything.
The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

A really nice video.  Even if you don't know Armenian, it does a great job conveying the impression that bishops are real people who work hard for the faithful, and not simply liturgical space aliens who make contact with earthlings once in a while for a couple of hours.  :)

Many years to him!  ADD moment:  he had a really nice breakfast.   I had breakfast at McDonald's. :(
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

There is a book in Romanian called "A day in the life of a Metropolitan" . Funny but not flattering at all. I think the author, a former monk himself, suffered some mild persecution for writing it.
Holy martyr Proterius, patriarch of Alexandria,  pray for us!
