I like it!


well i do not the style is strange to me!

So?

its a non traditional style! i prefer to venerate Orthodox Icons

"Orthodox" westernised icons with chubby angels?



Btw, I think that I (or maybe other forum member) had already postes these two icons in the "strange icons" section, I think they're of Polish or Ukrainian origin.

The iconographer is from Ukraine.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

The Martyrs St. Prince Michael of Chernigov and his boyar St. Theodore. Martyred by a Khan for refusing to worship idols.

“God,”
The words rumbled:
“There is much suffering,
But the church is alive. "

 “How long, Archpriest, are we to suffer thus?” I answered: “Until our very death, Markovna!” And she replied, with a sigh: “So be it, Petrovich, let us plod on.” - Life of Avvakum by Himself

Nastasya, Nastasya, be
patient and do not cry:
Not every happiness
Comes in the clothing of fortune.

St. Avvakum, pray for us!

St. Ambrose, pray for us!

I change my picture daily to reflect feast days. Ask me!

Most Holy Theotokos, save us! :)
Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Amen.

(today is that feast day!)

Depending on calendar and tradition ;P
Well, today is Sunday of the Fathers of the 7th ecumenical council.
Pray for persecuted Christians, especially in Serbian Kosovo and Raška, Egypt and Syria
