This was published today?

I am not sure when it was published.  The news is recent enough that it was shared by my diocese on FB.

What a beautiful couple of images to see! It is always pretty to see people honoring Our Lady Theotokos :)
I'm sure it makes her smile.


On a side note, I wish the Eastern Orthodox Church Bishops would put birds on their shoulders.

I would feel so privileged and refreshed to be part of a crowd like that.
"Love ... is an abyss of illumination, a mountain of fire ... . It is the condition of angels, the progress of eternity" (Climacus).

Quote from: Seekingtrue
Yes we who are far from sainthood we can recognize a living saint and I'm talking from personal experience.Yes they are gentle soo gentle it can not be described it is like gentleness and humility in one and also they have this light this energy it's beyond words...and when you are near them you feel ecstatic and very happy

Consecration of Ethiopian Tabots

On the evening of Thursday, August 24, 2017, the clergy and faithful of the Ethiopian Orthodox Archdiocese of New York gathered at the historic Holy Trinity Cathedral in the Bronx to consecrate a pair of tabots - sacred altar stones, without which a church's altar is not considered valid - for the chapels of the newly dedicated Kidane Mehret Kidane Selam Hermitage and Women's Monastery, which is presently being established in New York's Catskill Mountains.

The tabots were consecrated by H.E. Abune Thaddeus, Archbishop of the Ethiopian Orthodox Archdiocese of the Caribbean, and H.E. Mor Titus Yeldho, Archbishop of the Malankara Archdiocese of the Syriac Orthodox Church.

H.E. Abune Zekarias - Archbishop of New York,  is presently traveling in Ethiopia and could not attend.

So we have 7 Tunes plus an Ethiopian tune...

I feel the sudden need to try to Copticize the Hymn now

Look close at the photograph of St. Mary's Coptic Orthodox Church in Roswell, Georgia and you will see a vertical CRACK in each door. These doors were 'cracked' before my eyes on successive Wednesdays in Prayer before the start of Divine Liturgy in the Fall of 2006 and confessed to Priest Luke, Priest Elias Eskander and the Elder passing out the bread after each occurrence. H.G. Bishop Youssef is informed, too. This photograph was taken on Mubarek Liberation Day. Oddly, the Elder (who refused to give me his name) made an appearance investigating the presence of the photographer there that afternoon as a meeting was underway at the new fellowship hall next door on that auspicious day. I had to go back to the Van to get the umbrella and the Elder made an appearance to quiz the photographer, 'what are you doing here'. When the Elder saw me, I confessed my purpose there was to photograph my appearance before the 'cracked doors' remember me? I asked. He ran. Greg Diehl and I both laughed as the significance of the day and the former occurrence had been confessed to him, too. The angst confessed in prayer at the time was in grief over disobedience to the Divine Mandate to attend service at St. Gabriel E.O.T.C. in Decatur, Georgia on Atonement Day. I couldn't go back to St. Gabriel after the failure. I missed the elevation of the monk/priests in ceremony to Bishop by the Holy Synod of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church in Washington D.C. in 2007. This unrighteous Steward is senior to those Bishops. In Luke, Then the steward said within himself, ‘What shall I do? For my lord taketh away from me the stewardship. I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed. I am resolved what to do, that when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.’ So he called every one of his lord’s debtors unto him, and said unto the first, ‘How much owest thou unto my lord?’ xvi. 3-5

You underestimate the power of Coptic melismatic chant to extend the services.  "oooooooo yoooooouuuuuuuun whoooooooooooo areeeeeeeee ouuur sheephaaaaaaaaaaard" et cetera.  I think a four hour duration is well within the realm of possibility.
