Oven-Baked Eggplant/Zucchini/Tomato Soup
Mira, I'm revisiting to add a question I meant to ask on previous visits and revisits. You indicate below that "Eggplants are eagerly awaited here in Romania every summer." Is it that eggplants are imported? Which colors tend to appeal?

England's Nazareth: the shrine at Walsingham
Theologians base their thinking on the original deposit of faith, so no vision subsequent to the time of the apostles has theological authority. Visions enlighten recipients to truths already known or implicit in the original message. In a ...

England's Nazareth: the shrine at Walsingham
I miss having Mary as a more prominent figure in our Orthodox Church. But we do celebrate her on August 15 (The Dormition of the Mother of God) and September 8 (Mary's Birth). Am reading now about theological disputes about the Assumption, ...
