Full church in Qamishli, Syria for the wa'do da-lmeeno (also known as Naheere) service of Holy Week.

Council of Nicea:
Εθη ἀρχαῖα κρατείτω. 
Mores antiqui obtineant.
The ancient ways shall prevail.

The sentiment of Nicea in Greek and Latin, translated into English.

Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.
