Good luck.
Good luck, indeed!
Thanks. :) The thing is I can easily see lawyers, judges, public defenders, on some of my colleagues, while as for myself I still don't get why I'm on Law school. I almost studied German on university, but at the last moment I feared for my economical stability. Now I see how dumb it was to think studying Law would grant me anything here.

Don't you already know Mexican?

Further specialization makes you more marketable.
I know Mexican and Kraut, but I've never studied Mexican formally, and my Kraut certificate is probably insufficient. My English certificate is high tier, but I should get an actual degree to be a good and qualified teacher. I think an English degree would also qualify me to teach Portuguese.

By barrios you mean the favelas? Some of them are fine (my church is in the entrance of one and we haven't gotten much problem), some are inhospitable. I never went to the insides of a favela in my life, although I'd cross world-notorious Cidade de Deus daily.

Jesus replied, “Moses permitted you to hug your girlfriends because your hearts were hard. But it was not this way from the beginning. I tell you that anyone who hugs his girlfriend, except it be a Christian side-hug, commits fornication.”

The disciples said to him, “If this is the situation between a boyfriend and girlfriend, it is better not to hug.”

Jesus replied, “Not everyone can accept this word, but only those to whom it has been given. For there are side-huggers who were born that way, and there are side-huggers who have been made that way by others—and there are those who choose to be side-huggers for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. The one who can accept this should accept it.”

Hyperdox Herman works at my local public library. There was a random selection of books supposedly related to Easter at library's hallway. One of them was St. John Damascene's book on icons. Pretty heavy stuff for a random bypasser. I wonder what they are talking about at employee's coffee hours.

The A to Z of the Orthodox Church By Michael Prokurat, Alexander Golitzin, Michael D. Peterson
lists three main 1st c. Christian heretic groups: Judaizers, Docetists, and Dualists, on p. 12. For the 2nd c., it lists gnostics, modalists, and montanists.

I was confused at first as I remembered reading an A to Z by Fr. John McGuckin, but apparently that one was on patristic theology... how many A to Zs are there I wonder...

2nd century gnostics were the bomb though... er, I mean, in a filthy evil heretic sort of way  :police:

We do it here in Brazil too, and Spanish Americans do it to their friends. I think any Brazilian child had their sad moment when teachers started asking them to stop calling them uncles.

I'll join in in echoing its universality. Old Believer children do the same, referring to unrelated but familiar people as "aunt" or "uncle." I still prefix the names of my two Russian teachers in elementary school with "Aunt," even though we are only distantly related, if at all. Anybody who was taught under them would know exactly who I'm referring to.

yes. Went to the march. The RC presence was pretty strong. I say at least 4 priests and a friar. Plus banners of as many parishes.

Happy international workers' day '

Got any plans for Haymarket Martyrs Day?
yes. Went to the march. The RC presence was pretty strong. I say at least 4 priests and a friar. Plus banners of as many parishes.

I dunno if it's just the online circles I frequent (and it probably is), but there seems to be a fair renewed RC interest in all those troublesome worker's rights encyclicals from a century ago.

Our local plant is owned by the Kochs, so nobody was marching, but they're at least still union.

Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

THE OPINIONS HERE MAY NOT REFLECT THE ACTUAL OR PERCEIVED ORTHODOX CHURCH

Take a breath, read Ecclesiastes 1:9.

I like positive RC workers rights encyclicals.

Latin American Catholics may have pushed it way too hard, though. Some Brazilian clergy would make Russian red priests look like neocons.

"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

Happy afterfeast! Probably national hangover day around here. We have our retro Socialist marches too but mostly it's kind of spring holiday.  Those graduated from upper secondary school wear a specific kind of hat. Older ones might go for a picnic. Younger ones get roaring drunk.
I just need to find out how to say it in Slavonic!
