~ PLEASE REMEMBER, there are Christians throughout the current troubles in Ukraine, and on all sides: pray for them. Unlike in past ages, some of the local clergy are trying to maintain peace between the protesters and the various government forces, on the streets, day and night. This picture is of a man in the robes & stole of an Orthodox priest, holding a shield on his shoulder.
