As much as I like Western liturgy, it sometimes seems disjointed to me. Maybe because it doesn't have so many litanies, aka "liturgical glue."

It's funny, I usually feel the opposite: Western liturgy, along with most of the non-Byzantine Eastern rites, seems to have a definite order, progression, and flow, while Byzantine liturgy usually seems to me like a bunch of loosely connected odds and ends thrown together.  Years of study and experience have tempered this somewhat, but I still feel this way for the most part, at least in terms of the average form of celebration.

I definitely agree with this. Although I can't speak for Oriental rites, it would be a lot easier to teach an irreligious person the NO or Tridentine Mass than to teach him Byzantine Liturgy. Western liturgy is logical and more clearly structured. I was speaking from an aesthetic angle of a steady "flow", though I'm sure that viewpoint at least partially stems from familiarity.

That does seem true even in the little experience I have. As much as I've acquired a taste for the Byzantine Liturgy, all of those seemingly copy-pasted litanies still get me.

Too much sunlight makes me sad. Every summer, somewhere in July or August, I have a mini-depression. It is, however, cloudy and rains again and now I feel a lot better.

Thanks. I won't be posting as much, though. A strict diet, one could say. As a compensation I'll try to put more thought in the posts I do make.

Bishops are called primates, and they all have a shared lineage, leading back to one original ancestor. Yet the administrative structure of the Church has changed over time. Descent with modification. Orthodoxy has been promoting evolution all along and not even realized it.

I wonder if I have too many shoes. I finally got the rest of my shoes from the warehouse and I had forgot about two kinds of sneakers that I have. Wouldn't probably miss them if I lost them.

Nope. Not a chance. You'll need few more pairs if you want to dress anyhow nicely and comfortably.

Also, not gender-related issue. I had more shoes than my ex-girlfriend had.

What exactly do you need? Black oxfords, brown oxfords, patent formal shoes (tho most won't need those). White shoes are an option if you still opt into the spring sweater or summer seersucker crowd (almost nobody does). Now, if you have practical hobbies like boating, biking, gardening that's another matter from what I understand James to be addressing. Any more variety just marks a faddish man.

Loafers are nice to have, as well as some sneakers you can beat up.

My footwear:

A pair of sandals for informal/comfort wear.
A pair of black dress shoes for church/formal occasions.
A pair of black tennis shoes for work.
A pair of regular tennis shoes for other occasions.

That's all I want or need.

Perhaps if you have a lot of hobbies or a job that requires different footwear, but for the average male I don't see much of a need. It's not like females who need several pairs of shoes to accommodate their constantly changing wardrobe.

I only have

1 pair of formal dress shoes
2 pairs of Adidas sneakers for everyday use
1 pair of working shoes which is recycled from my old shoes when I buy new ones

Porter, you pleasantly surprise me as a being a gentleman with style.

My shoes come from Spain (hats and ties come from Italy; shirts and suits, bespoke). Actually, I shouldn't pretend this is me anymore.

Actually, a well-dressed woman doesn't need as many shoes as you'd think. Black pumps and cream pumps cover a lot of ground. Obviously those choosing to match their shoes to their gowns or accessories -- which is a good style choice -- would need more. But this idea of new heels for every outing isn't elegance but cheap fad.

Derbys, loufers, monks, sneakers. Leather, suede, textile. Various colors. There are lots of options. You can live with only one pair if you want to but if you want to dress nicely and comfortably you need more than one pair.

Quote from: The Life of Ivan Neronov
[Ecclesiastics] conspired against him because they hated his teaching for its zealous emphasis on proper Christian conduct: with great courage he denounced all whom he saw behaving in an ungodly fashion... [As such] he was deprived of his priestly rank, bound in iron chains, and broken down in jails.

I wish we had a Bible with a cover as nice as the Ignatius Catholic Study Bible.

Even their non-Study Bible version is nice:



I saw a classmate pull it out once in class and I was rather surprised.

This will be perfect for my dorm-room liturgies. Now all I need is a bell-less thurible and a breviary.
