8 May 2013. Here’s the Official Schedule for the Memorial Day Pilgrimage at St T’s

St Tikhon's 05.12


Here’s the official listing for the Memorial Day Pilgrimage at St T‘s (there’s an article for the monastery in the Russian Wikipedia, but NOT in the English one… it looks like SVS/Syosset is trying to whitewash history):

Monday, May 27, 2013

  • 07.30 Divine Liturgy, Monastery Church
  • 10.00 Hierarchical Divine Liturgy
  • 12.00 Veteran’s Pannikhida and Memorial Service, All Saints Bell Tower
  • 13.30 Akathist to St Aleksei Tóth in the Monastery Church (NB: The Russian Wikipedia article is more complete than the English one is… shame on the OCA)
  • 14.30 Molieben to the Most Holy Theotokos and Anointing of the Sick,
    Infirm, and all Pilgrims at the Monastery Bell Tower
  • 16.00 Vespers and Matins in the Monastery Church

All times are Eastern Daylight Time

For the entire schedule of the weekend, click here. God willing, it’ll be better than the last couple of times. Of course, the question remains… is Mollard going to allow Feodosy and JP to serve with him? Is Mollard going to have some sort of role for his sugar daddy Herman? Perspirin’ minds wanna know…

29 October 2011. Only His Resident Geek Knows For Sure… Did Feodosy Lazor Subscribe to VFR or Not? Perspirin’ Minds Wanna Know!

I got an interesting “subscription notice” from Word Press. Someone claiming to be Feodosy Lazor signed up for my blog! Their e-mail address was theodosiuslazor@xx, and they were identified from Pittsburgh PA. Of course, there are tons of internet trolls and goofballs running online scams out there. As a friend of mine told me:

Someone’s trying to bait you since you publicised that “ocawonder” subscribed to VFR.

I was thinkin’ along those lines, myself. Well, if it IS Feodosy Lazor… so be it… if it isn’t, hey, shit-fer-brains, get a life and get rooted (as they say in Oz), chum. I wasn’t born yesterday. Hey, 10 percent of my audience hates me, 10 percent loves me, and 80 percent doesn’t give a damn one way or the other. I’m not important in and of myself. If I speak the truth, no matter how distasteful or ugly, I’m your friend. If I don’t, I’m your enemy… it’s quite that simple.

Pass me the jug… this is thirsty work.
