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.
God bless!

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.  :)
How this relates to the coming Antichrist? I don't know...

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.
She hears, upon that water without sound,
A voice that cries, “The tomb in Palestine
Is not the porch of spirits lingering.
It is the grave of Jesus, where he lay.”
We live in an old chaos of the sun,
Or old dependency of day and night,
Or island solitude, unsponsored, free,
Of that wide water, inescapable.
