  • Television of Serbian Patriarchate
  • Why Tigray from Eritrea wanted separation from Tigray in Ethiopia? Was not better to be in one state?
  • Do heads of Churches in communion with Coptic Patriarchate have some synaxis (council, meeting) from time to time? Coptic, Armenian, Malankara, Syriac, Ethiopian... Did all of the patriarchs served the Liturgy together in last decades?

  • I like when priests and monks have a short beard. They represent our Church and should be tidy and neat. In middle ages all males had a beard. That was such a time. It is not a dogma but custom.
