Yes, Peter, sad indeed! Especially when both jurisdictions have so much to offer. I recently asked an Indian Orthodox acquaintence if he could provide me with a translation of a certain hymn I was seeking. He very cynically remarked that the Indians were too busy translating litigation to bother translating religious material.
On a brighter note: two new additions to erkohet.com today:
1. A prayer for the youth by John the Deacon.
2. A synopsis on the life and person of bessed John the Deacon.
I have been told by an Armenian friend of mine that so many Armenian holy men, including John the Deacon, have been due to be canonised for a long time, but that the Armenian Church has unfortunately been constantly distracted by other issues such as consolidating its flock after all the persecution and dispersion of the Armenians.
