Animals at Orthodox Monasteries


I couldn't resist passing along this delightful news story. about animals at monasteries in Russia.
It is nice to know that our Vladika Seraphim also has peacocks, along with other creatures, at the diocesan centre in Ontario.

Does Lucho the cat count as exotic? :)

Do you have a church cat down there at St. John's? Post a picture!

-- Mat. Donna, currently cat-starved, as ours has seemingly left us

hmm...even if the story is basically real, behind the broken translation, methinks someone has, um, doctored the photo....;-)

Yeah, that's a doctored photo. I've seen it before.

I've got pictures of Lucho up on Facebook. Hang on, I'll get some here.
