Happy 4th of July for those of us in America!
Happy 4th!  We did all the usual things, with the addition of boring my kids to tears with Britannica's timeline of the Revolution.  Because I'm just swell.   :laugh:
Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no clue, so there's that.

It was quite an agreeable 4th of July here as well. Sans fireworks.

Underwhelming or too loud?

Just right. I like firework displays. Any idiot setting off a couple of firecrackers in their garden (as it happens a lot around Halloween) and setting all the neighbourhood dogs howling just makes me want to toss a firebomb over their fence. >:(

Today we had a priest-guest from Russia. Russian pronunciation of Church Slavonic is so funny.

It's the only form of CS I've heard. How is it different from others?

Softer in comparison to Polish, not even mentioning Bulgarian or Serbian - more "ye", than "e", "dzi' " instead of "d". It has also tendency to "akanie" (so, saying in some places "a" instead of "o" - the same like in Russian, but it's an error in Church Slavonic) etc. Also specific prolongation of some vowels - again, probably as it's done in Russian.

My godson is unable to pronounce CS without akanye since a very gentle friend of ours scolded him "it's VASKRESE, you moron!"

O LOL, even most of Russians pronunce it "voskryeeesye" (well, maybe some put there "a" instead of "o"). While in Serbian (Serbian-Serbian, not Serbian - Church Slavonic) it's "vaskrse".

In Russian, the confusion comes from the fact that in the word "Resurrected", the O is stressed, which sounds like a long O in English and in "Resurrection" (or "Sunday"), the O is unstressed, which makes it sound like a short A in English.

So, when you say "воскресе" or "voskryesye", you say it like "vose-kryesye", and in "воскресенье", you say it like "vaskryesyenye."

Greetings, everyone! Long time no see, as I've been busy with stuff. I thought I'd give everyone an update on what's going on.

I finally got my student tuition refund last week, so I was able to use Lyft to go to an Orthodox parish for the first time in my life today. It was very interesting (albeit small, as it was a house parish, but I didn't really mind it so much as just was surprised because when I arrived I expected to be looking for a church building), I liked the smell of the incense and there was brunch served and the folks were friendly and welcoming. I'm busy studying this week, but next week I'll be talking with the priest more to learn about Orthodoxy and I look forward to doing so. I feel happy to have gone, kind of like finding your way home, so to speak.

In "воскресе" the first "e" is stressed and in "воскресенье" the second "e" is stressed. At least in Church Slavonic.
And "воскресе" yeah, means "resurrected" as a verb. The adjective "resurrected" is voskreshiy.

A common misconception. It's actually not headgear, but a giant centipede coaxed to sleep on the bishop's head. This demonstrates the continuity of the bishops with the ancient Desert Fathers who commanded fearsome beasts.

Hey, remember when England was Christian?  Man, good times!

I'm 39 y.o., so... no  ;)

I bet wgw can write a dissertation on it.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

I went to a gypsy party yesterday and it was pretty softcore apart from the extremely loud and fast music. I don't see why all the beef with them, all gypsies I know were pretty normal people. I used to play music with one when younger, but he was pretty assimilated.

Because they steal horses!

BTW it's a joke

They don't steal horses.   ::)

They steal children!
I think one tried to scheme my grandma, but this didn't happen in Brazil and I'm not sure the schemer was a gypsy. Silly gypsy, it obviously didn't work. You just can't scheme an elderly Jewess!

I'm having my first day of work today. I've been to three jobs before, but they were all in voluntary regime, and now I'll officially be in a labour relationship. I'll be an intern for a teacher at his criminal law office and research antitrust laws (which are criminal law in Brazil) for his friend, they'll share my workforce, which I'm expecting to be a pretty good experience since I'll have two very different perspectves. So excited!

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

Was the New-rite Kalimavkion modeled after the Turkish fez? I can't seem to find a picture of an Old Believer Kalimavkion.

Sometimes I post something online and then think, "If I die, that's the last thing I'll have said."

No one ever talks about how stressful always being mindful of your death is.
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

They wore their veils either alone or over a koukoulion.



The kalimavkion might just be a local development from the koukoulion and not a fez. I think it's a mistake to assume that what was old rite in Russia was universal across all of Eastern Orthodoxy.

I'm convinced it's not possible to "progress" from the duo of materialism/physicalism + existentialism. Metaphysics is irrelevant and no ethical system can claim objectivity after Kant.
