I cannot make apostrophe with my wireless keyboard. It is not a problem in Finnish as it is used only in very few instances but it certainly makes English quite complicated. It feels silly write some words without clipping.

So today I donated blood with a large group, one of my friends' friend is a Shiite Muslim and the sheikh went with us to donate too, in tunic, turban and cape. It was the first time I ever felt safe downtown Rio, we got some ugly looks, but no one approached and neither did I expect one to lol

Very nice guys, these Shiites. One of them informed me some of the last malês (Muslim Africans who were brought enslaved to Brazil in the early XIX century and their descendants) are still alive, and he did meet some! I was always curious about their (as I supposed) total disappearance, but it seems they're just small, aged and discreet.

I hate that ialmisry either mispelled certain words or used different renderings, it makes searching for his old posts impossible. :P

I was trying to find his post about the Gospel according to St. Mark and the way it's structured mirrors Holy Week.

A guy I grew up with is part of a Grammy-winning band currently doing a national tour. It's really strange to me that a kid I jammed with a few times is now playing packed venues in major cities, because I don't think of him primarily as a musician, but as the guy doing backflips in the jumpy house for his cousin's birthday party at his grandpa's house.

Liturgy of the Entrance of the Theotokos feast at the unique Orthodox parish in Warsaw that has maintaned fully (I mean not only for Nativity or Epiphany) calendar. 1/3 of the people that came were from my parish... Despite the fact that this parish with full new calendar one is very specific, with all Polish in the services (our standard is Church Slavonic) - if it was in Church Slavonic and a bit more reminding our parish (or any typical Polish Orthodox parish) I'd say today's frequention of our parishioners could be much more higher....

Which parish is this?  Are you saying its a parish only used for special feasts like these, or that it is the only Orthodox parish in Warsaw used throughout the year?  Or that its unique in that its a dedicated Polish language parish?

Either way it sounds like a lovely service, even though it would be hypothetically lovelier in Church Slavonic.

No no no. There are 8 Orthodox parishes in Warsaw (plus metropolitan chapel, however I'm not sure if there are regular services; ), 3 of them having their own separate buluding (well, one is in construction), teh rest is loacetd in th bulduing that have also other functions. Rhere are also 2 parishes beyond Warsaw, but in quite close area. Anyway, 3 years ago the metropolitan forced the calendar change to the old one, he allowed to the metropolitan cathedral, my parish and one of these 2 parishs in area close to Warsaw to have some additional services accoridng to the new calendar. Only one parish in Warsaw, that's the qunie using Polish as the liturgical language, is allowed to keep the new calendar. That's a very specific parish in the Polish Orthodox Church (and even if you compare it with other parishes using Polish as a liturgical language), I got used to it 1 year ago, eraleir I'd been going there reluctantly. Still, many active parishioners from my parish, icnluding me, have problems to acept the current situation. So, still, at new calendar Chrsitmas services the church is packed, while on these oens accoridng to the old calendar not so, plus there come people that appear at our parish 1-2 a year, and they're not Polish.

I used to fall asleep to MTV or ESPN every night as a teenager in the 90s, whereby certain things entered deep into my soul while the gates of my heart were left unguarded. And after a time these wicked things took root, until they ripened into the fruit of abomination. I also have Keith Olbermann permanently stuck in my head. When I joined the Orthodox Church I had hoped that these foul demons would be exorcised, but so far God has so willed that they remain thorns in my side.

Have you not heard the saying of Abba Hezekiah when he was falsely accused by the other monks who were jealous of his closeness to the Patriarch of Alexandria? "Brothers, if that's moving up, then I'm moving out!" And at that point he was miraculously translated back to the Thebiad.

It's also the "something else" that I need to get me through this semi-charmed kind of life.


Baby, babeeeee.

That song is stuck in my head now

Sounds like you need a new drug.
Huey Lewis?

Or Marty McFly. But he's just too darn loud.
Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Amen.

Hey Rapha, what's up with Brazilian women? Why so uptight?

No, the stereotype is that Brazilian women are whores. Get it right.

They don't think you're ready for their jelly?

It was unusual for me to meet a Brazilian chick who wasn't very kind and sweet. She gave everyone at our Thanksgiving dinner a bad attitude. And when I told her about part of my family's background she thought I was lower than dirt. It's not my fault the Brazilian side of my family deal drugs and money launder.

If RaphaCam's accounts are to be believed, your Brazilian family members are probably just normal Brazilians.  Are you sure this Brazilian woman wasn't a schemanun or something?

I believe my priest quipped she was a "retired roman catholic nun" after leaving the party, cause I asked him what she was doing in the States (just visiting a friend).
