I have been to Luxor in January and it was pretty darn hot.

OK, so it seems it may be really a reason ;)

Also the novices got chairs and they didn't. So not fair :P

Heat rises.  Think about it.

How do I know this, you ask? 

I recall being in a very hot building in Greece years back, with a nice marble floor.  I touched it, and it felt ice cold.  After that, any time I got uncomfortably hot, all I had to do was get some 'floor time'...

with a marble floor, that is some extra coolness there. I know the feeling.

The newly released Christians of Al-Qaryaten who were liberated from their kidnappers only yesterday; and their families reunited at the Syriac Orthodox Patriarchate in Bab Touma, Damascus.  They were released yesterday after about 6 months of their abduction.

I don't know what it's called, but it's for the feast of the Presentation of the Lord in the Temple (i.e., today).

It's not a service, it's a custom done by Armenians on the Feast of the Presentation. People jump over the fire. The whole thing is... Well, it's something.

After much squinting, I recognized this Coptic icon of St. Philopateer Mercurius was painted in 1672 AD (or 1388 AM, Coptic year) in the ancient Church of St. Mercurius in Old Cairo (Ancient Coptic Cairo)

I just realized something about that bishop.  Notice the liturgical dress.  It gives you a good idea of what a Coptic bishop wore during liturgy in the 1600s. Very similar to some EOs we see today.

Syriac Orthodox Liturgical epitrachelion, known as "batrashil" for the bishop, the bishop being "Bishop Athanasius Abraham Yaghmur of Nebek", "a scribe in the scriptorium at the monastery of Mar Musa al-Ḥabashi in Syria" (St. Moses the Abyssinian, now under Syriac Catholic ownership) and Mar Julian al-Qaryatein (sadly destroyed by ISIS).  Located in Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC.  The Met says this is dated 1336, but Jennifer Ball from CUNY dated this 1534/5.  She gives the reasons for the discrepancy:

Quote
The historical inscription confirms the name of the Bishop Abraham Yaghmur but gives a date of 1648 in the Seleucid calendar (=1336/7 CE).  The Arabic and Syriac are of one hand and embroidered into a single pieceof silk, meaning that both inscriptions should bear the same date.  It is possible that the embroiderer copied an older fourteenth-century object.  That would explain why the style of the figures does not reflect sixteenth-century ecclesiastical embroideries, which attempt to model figures with shading and create some sense of three-dimensional space with architectural and landscape elements, nor Mamluk or Ottoman tastes, the ruling dynasties of sixteenth-century Syria.  However, the Arabic inscription naming the same Bishop Athanasius Abraham Yaghmur as the Syriac text, makes it very unlikely that it was copied from an earlier object, for it would rely on the existence of a fourteenth-century bishop of the same name.  While Athanasius Abraham is not an uncommon name, the added details of his father’s name, village, and his second or family name of  Yaghmur distinguish him from others.  The author could locate only one Athanasius Abraham in the fourteenth century, and he was a Maphrian, an important title likely to be indicated on the stole.  A Bishop Abraham from the “convent of Natpha [i.e. Nebek],” as al-Ḥabashi was sometimes known, is mentioned in 1319 CE.  However, in that case Abraham was probably the name taken upon ordination as bishop, as that is the only name given.  Moreover, the absence of the name Athanasius seems to point to a different person.  Furthermore, neither of these fourteenth-century bishops have the name Yaghmur or a father named ‛Isa, so far as we know.  This leaves the possibility that the numbers were written backwards and should be read as “one thousand 846” as opposed to 648.  Typically, artists, many of whom were illiterate, simply copied letters and numbers from their patron’s instructions when inscribing works.  When read as 1846 in the year of the Greeks, the object can be dated to 1534/5, certainly within the lifetime of our Bishop Athanasius Abraham Yaghmur.

From the Divine Liturgy celebrated at St. Peter’s Malankara Syriac Orthodox Cathedral, Philadelphia, PA on 27-Feb-2016.

Fr. Abraham Wassef of St. Mina’s Coptic Orthodox Church, Holmdel, NJ co-celebrated the liturgy with Fr. Joy John and Fr. Jose Daniel of the Malankara Syriac Orthodox Church. Several youth members from the Coptic and Malankara church attended the Sapro, Third Hour, Sixth Hour prayers and the Divine Liturgy.

Several youth members from the Coptic and Malankara church attended the Sapro, Third Hour, Sixth Hour prayers and the Divine Liturgy.

Is Sapro equivalent to Matins?

Yes.  It means "morning".
Please don't project meta-debates onto me.

^^ if there wasn't Syriac below the Greek text, I would be sure it's an ancient Greek icon ;) Well, the frames look also Syriac/Armenian (but could be Greek too).

Our bishops don't travel with those.
