St. Luke, pray for us!

Blago Megalov has been drawing caricatures being a commentary of the life of the Orthodox Church (especially the Bulgarian one, that, as we know, is quite specific and sometimes afflicting) for a few years. This month a book called Свещица пред вечния огън и други карикатури.

Here you can see some of there caricatures. If you know any Slavic language using Cyrillic, you should be able to understand at least a part of the gallery.

Some of them may be considered as quite strong, but anyway, I find this attitude as really great.

Pray for persecuted Christians, especially in Serbian Kosovo and Raška, Egypt and Syria
Слава Ісусу Христу!!! Glory to Jesus Christ!!!

Some I get, others I don't understand.

I'll get every other word, but, it loses its meaning.  Sad

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

These are so funny.  Wish my visit to Sofia had been longer last time I was in eastern Europe.  I never knew Bulgarians had such a great sense of humour.  I also love the picture in this article:  http://www.themoscowtimes.com/news/article/russia-wants-bulgarians-to-stop-vandalizing-soviet-monuments/505354.html
