Sharp-eyed readers might notice a gap in the liturgy between panels one and two. That's because, uh, a couple seconds pass in between.

Re: the second panel -- it's not quite a statement in *support* of Bohdan as such -- it's not saying he's a good leader, but it does pretty strongly imply he is *the* leader now.

What's worse than violent ultranationalism? Answer: violent ultranationalism dosed with religion. I have a feeling that the priest's prayers for peace, stability and the oneness of all are not going to come true anytime soon.

Wait, this has nothing to do with anything but do Orthodox churches not have benches, or is that just Bohdan's way of making sure no one sits out of his service. (probably neither)

Hah, I doubt Bohdan would try to re-arrange things that much. Bad PR.

But yeah -- Orthodox churches tend to be all standing, all the time. American ones tend to have pews, but not use them much. Here, have a quote from "The Travels of Macarius, Patriarch of Antioch" to see that people like me have been going "??!!" for centuries: "God grant us his especial assistance for the whole of the present week! As for the Muscovites, their feet must surely be of iron!"
