Personally, I prefer 'old media', but there are one or two blogs I enjoy! The photo of Eastern Christians above, incidentally, shows, left to right, the newly tonsured Monk Basil (Krivocheine), the future Archbishop of Brussels (MP); Archimandrite Kiryk; Prince Dimitry Alexeyevich Shahovskoy, the future Bishop John of San Francisco (Metropolia), who was tonsured by Fr Kiryk shortly after this picture was taken; Archimandrite Tikhon, the future Archbishop of San Francisco (ROCOR); and Monk Sophrony (Sakharov). The photo was taken at St Panteleimon Monastery, Mt Athos, 1926.
