Re: Seattle has become a nightmare - no longer "Emerald City"

This last picture of the skete did not seemingly appear consistently on every computer. Here is another closer up view : https://blogs.ancientfaith.com/morningoffering/wp-content/uploads/sites/6/2017/11/unnamed-2-1.jpg However, before this peaceful church scene was to be achieved, Fr Tryphon suffer...

Re: About a Liberal nun in "ROCOR" - MP

That's a sharp eye, Orthodox in Michigan ! I just noticed that you spaced out the words in your user name. Appalling about the many times that symbol appeared in the stance of someone who should exude respectability but is playing a little kids' game - ? I don't know what to think but it's a shocke...

Re: Seattle has become a nightmare - no longer "Emerald City"

Meanwhile, I was going to mention that the 'punched by Devil' incident occurred while Elder Michael was serving at Valaam's distant Gethsemane Skete. Looking that up, I found lovely pictures of an exquisite little Church where we assume the intimidation attempt occurred : https://upload.wikimedia.o...

Re: Seattle has become a nightmare - no longer "Emerald City"

Thanks for that info, Luke. Is that right ? He is still suffering from hearing problems ? I was trying to figure out whether he is back to normal or not. I noticed he has not posted anything [ that I noticed, though I didn't exhaustively look through his facebook posts ] about his state of recovery...

Re: Seattle has become a nightmare - no longer "Emerald City"

The above incident is reminiscent of one which occurred nearly 100 years earlier to Valaam Elder Michael [Pitkevich], who later went under the MP, in 1957. By Hieroschemamonk Michael's own telling in his biography "Interior Silence: Elder Michael, the Last Great Mystic of Valaam" [pp 45 a...

Re: About a Liberal nun in "ROCOR" - MP

Aha, what would you make out of that, OrthodoxinMichigan ? I went to look at that picture and didn't remember seeing it. At 1st glance, I assumed she is doing that trendy use of hands to form a so-called heart. That image is corny and overdone ; that's why I say 'so-called'. Also, the nun is lookin...

Re: About a Liberal nun in "ROCOR" - MP

Having happily forgotten about sister Vassa all this time, I caught a video interview she conducted of Abbot Tryphon of the Vashon Island Monastery near Seattle. I was not at all sorry to see Fr John Whiteford, also of Rocor-MP, intervene on Abbot Tryphon's facebook announcement of the "Saturd...
