Sasha, you merit a gold star for this one. Of course, Sasha is the beaming Russian fellow togged out in the Cossack ensemble in the photo. In America, many Ethiopians come to our parishes. God willing, the split between the Ethiopian Church and the rest of Orthodoxy may be mended. They are the bearers of an ancient and venerable tradition.
CHRIST IS RISEN!
INDEED HE IS RISEN!
UPDATE: Sasha just sent me an e-mail saying that these lovely ladies are Eritreans. Yes, they are next door to Ethiopia, but, apparently, they are not quite the same thing. Thanks for the correction, Sasha!
