Unemployed? Why don't you become a priest?
« on: August 31, 2005, 01:23:27 AM »
The Ukrainian Orthodox Church under Patriach Moisey needs 30 priests to fill vacancies (no head hunters are required):

Who are these people?ÂÂ  And so many Bishops in America.ÂÂ  I wonder how many laity are attached to these Bishops?ÂÂ  

Me again, its really interesting in all the hype for "new" priests, they never once ask the prospect for a letter of canonical release from their present Bishop.  That tells me alot.

I've put in my application for "Vicar of all Iceland, Greenland and any area covered in snow".

In a past parish I was made, by one of the parishioners, Pirogi I, Patriarch of Allstonopolos and the Western Hemisphere, so going with this group I'd have to demote myself...it'll never happen... ::)

My seal was a double-headed beagle, which is interesting, because at the time I had a poodle/terrier, but now I do have a beagle.  Or as the truth would have it, the beagle has me.  You never own a beagle, they own you.  And I'm leanring that everyday, the hard way... ;)

The seal for the position I've applied for has the seal of two polydactyl cats swatting at each other!

Kool, when we both retire, to the same monastery, we can share our "war" stories... ;)
