I'm not going to be posting as much on OC.Net as before. I might stop in once in a while though. But I've come to realize that real life is more important.

It's interesting to see a recognition of Ss. Cyril and Methodios outside of a Slavic church. I also didn't know that St. Photios (of the "Photian Schism") was actually responsible for teaching the two of them.

In that icon, is the structure on the left supposed to represent the Roman Catholic Church having fallen into error by adoptong the filioque?  (As perhaps suggested by the triangular pediment evocatove both of Hellenic Pagan temples and with a motiv reminiscent of the triangular/trispherical diagrams of the Trinity, with the Filioque, heavily used for a time in rhe west in a polemical, anti-Orthodox manner, compared to the rounded, domed, Byzantine looking structure which obviosuly suggests an Orthodox parish and which is adorned with the Holy Cross, if not (at a distance at least) the distinctive three-barred cross.

Or the two buildings behind a teaching scene represent the teacher's solid grounding in both theological and worldly knowledge, which he is imparting to his students, and such historical stuff.

So I have a joke in my mind...but...I want to know what this is first...lol

Wet Phelonion Contest.

This happened to me at Pascha!

It rained this year....and I, with camera in hand, ran out for the procession.  Got soaked.  My hair was just dripped like a wet mop around my head.  The church became very hot and humid...as all the wet bodies began to dry over the following 4 hours.  :)

Everyone exited the church to the hall to get their baskets blessed.  Once blessed, I ran back in to the church....because I love the quietness of the church at Pascha after everyone leaves.  The lights are all still on, the candles are still lit, the Royal Gates are wide open....and it just a special moment.

So, the bishop (who was visiting our parish for Pascha this year) comes back with the servers in tow...and smiles at me...because he realized just how wet I had been...and asks if I have dried out.  When I say almost...he decides to "fix" that....and grabs the remaining holy water and does just as the photo...and pours it over my head.

I am truly blessed...in oh so many ways.  :)

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
