Almond Joy Orthodoxy

Fr John Moses writes:
You should be with me on a Friday night when I walk into Wal-mart. Being a Russian priest, I am dressed in my black prodrasnik, ryassa and skufia (long robes with big sleeves and a black hat). With my long white hair and white beard, I am quite a sight. People have never seen anything like me.

The reaction can go something like this: “Hey, Bubba, take a look at that! Is that a woman?”

Of course, if I have a chance to talk to them, I try to make them feel more at ease with humor. Lifting up my cross, I tell them that I am a “cross dresser.”

That usually breaks the ice.
