I personally think of His Grace as "bishop of the press"  :)
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

Quote
(A) Statue of Blessed R.Z. Noronha was found today, July 5th 2016, lying on the Arabian sea shore, at Kodi - Sastana, a place 10 kms away from Brahmavar. It was bought on July 4th 2016 afternoon to the sea shore by a fisherman Vasudeva Karvy, who found it floating on the sea. He was able to recognize that it was of some Christian Priest, so he made a call to local Roman Catholic priest, who sent parishioners to make an enquiry into the matter. Sooner, a few of the parishioners were able to identify it as Fr. Noronha's statue. They made a call to the trustee of St. Thomas Orthodox Syrian Church, Sastan , Mr. Clement D'silva, who informed the Parish Priest Fr. Noel Lewis. Fr. Lewis along with Fr. Lawrence Dsouza, Fr. Abraham Kuriakose, Mr. Anil Rodrigues, Mr. Clement D'silva, Mr. Kishore Dias, Mr. Lucas Dsouza, Mr. Moses rodrigues, Mr. Lawrence D'almeida, Mr. Joseph Rodrigues and Mr. Johnson Rodrigues arrived at the spot and made arrangements to take it to St. Mary's Orthodox Syrian Cathedral, Brahmavar where he is entombed.

The statue was carried in procession from the Gates of St. Mary's Cathedral to the parsonage. Fr. C.A. Isac (Vicar General) along with other priests offered incense. Many of the faithful were present.

Photos from the 'Familienfest', a special day for families organized at Mor Jacob of Sarough Monastery in Warburg, Germany.  An estimated number of 4000 people attended the Familienfest from different parts of Germany and the Netherlands.  Clergy from other OO Churches in Germany and the Netherlands also attended.

Oh yes... I would love this pictures, but since this the bishop causing (well, maybe not him personally) the break of Antiochians with JP... And it's interesting, that he's in fact visiting another Orthodox Antiochian Patriarchate ;)

That actually is a logo of the "diocese".

But seriously, why would he put that thing on?

^^ interesting epitrachils

I gather they are military chaplains.  They are some of the better camouflage vestments I have seen.

Yeah, for sure they are. Here the Orthodox bishop of the Polish army has on his epitrachil "Orthodox" cross in white-red (Polish national colours) circle.

That actually is a logo of the "diocese".

But seriously, why would he put that thing on?

Yeah, I know, but well, that's good you said this fact, as for posters here it's not something obvious.
It looks this way (see the bishop):


Why? No idea. Probably because Roman Catholic chaplains have such stoles and they have them to be known they're chaplains. People just like differentiation by clothes.

He is known for usually having quite good-looking vestments. And he still wears that travesty.

Yeah, that's true; they're based on (or produced by Greek and Serbian ones.

And he still wears that travesty.

Is this travesty? I wouldn't say so. I think it could be crafted in better way, if it's needed; because maybe it's needed, I mean it's possible there are some regulations of the chaplains vestments.

I see some difference between the two things. But sorry, it's an off-topic.
