Lord, have mercy.

This highlights my point for the need for better education.  Not more expensive.  Better.

Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no idea, so there’s that.

Pray for me, a wretched sinner.

If you cannot remember everything, instead of everything, I beg you, remember this without fail, that not to share our own wealth with the poor is theft from the poor and deprivation of their means of life; we do not possess our own wealth but theirs.  If we have this attitude, we will certainly offer our money; and by nourishing Christ in poverty here and laying up great profit hereafter, we will be able to attain the good things which are to come. - St. John Chrysostom

The woman is somewhat wrong of course. The mask is mostly for the protection of the guy, not her. And it's not full proof -- even if everyone had their mouths and noses covered air-tight the virus could still enter the human body through other places. The masks are just one part of a strategy for tackling the problem. But as the above image indicates, when combined with social distancing the masks can be very useful (I've seen several independent sources showing the differences between talking/breathing/coughing with and without a mask).

I know the picture is not accurate, but I thought it was funny.    As far as the usefulness of masks, I wear one at grocery stores.  But I also know some people who  think the masks hold germs in and are bad for you.  I am not 100% convinced of masks.  When this virus first came out, we were told not to wear masks.  Then the message changed that we are supposed to wear masks.  The experts have flip-flopped with other information about the virus also.

At this point, it's social hysteria like the Red Scare. Part of the reason that it's exaggerated at this point is that flu strains, like the 1919 Spanish flu and the 2000's Swine Flu, come and go, and people recover. It's not like Tuberculosis that stays for a lifetime. And at this point it's in decline, due to the summer months.

This is a recent photo of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem and it is certainly after the renovations that are reported online. The Dome is very pretty and actually reminds me a lot and its white blue and ceramic look of a blue and white ceramic incense burner that I bought in Russia about 20 years ago. I read one theory that the domed church style of Russia is based on the Dome of the Holy Sepulchre, because the Russian Dome style is an onion Style with a combination of cave and concave angles that is different from the classic upside-down Bowl Style of Byzantine Greek churches.

Does the icon include St. Ignatius of Jableczna? We're blessed to have a relic of his in our parish.

No, this is icon of the new canonised martyrs (and they were from Podlasie) + the miraclous icon of the Theotokos from Zaleszany (this village with its femenine monastery is also in Podlasie).



There is icon for martyrs of Chełmszczyzna AND Podlasie (the ones canonised in 2003 if I'm not mistaken) and he is there (2nd monk from the right side)

76th anniversary of Warsaw Uprising against Nazi Germans. 200 000 Warsaw inhabitants died (including Orthodox, intelectualsts, priests, children), the Red Army despite being close to the Polish capital didn't help.
"P" here means "Polska walcząca" - "Poland fighting"
