Hello again from our cold capital. Today, on Sunday Dec. 31, the temperature in the morning was -23 degrees.

I would like to invite you for a short visit to the Coptic Church of St. George and St. Antony in Gloucester, Ottawa.

The community of this church is very open and welcoming. Father Anthony shared a piece of  the blessed bread with me together with his kind smile.

Notice how the natural light is drawing attention to the sanctuary of the church. Strategically placed widows play with the sunlight creating the impression of being in Heaven.

      Zrobie Wam na ten temat maly wyklad jak sie zobaczymy w sobote. Jest to bardzo ciekawe jak sie potoczyly nasze losy, co nas laczy a co dzieli. Atmosfera w tym kosciele byla niezwykle mila. Powiem szczerze, ze uwielbiam tam chodzic. Zwlaszcza teraz kiedy studiuje pierwsze wieki Chrzescijanstwa. Pozdrawiam i do zobaczenia w sobote!
