This thread is for pictures, it could be paintings of the church, as well, that you saw and like. It would be advisable if it is educational as it is a christian forum.  For today I like this one: (http://www.visitingdc.com/images/eiffel-tower-paris-france.jpg)

A demotivational picture joke about my friend:

Bag, railway station, *Hat'ki (name of a village she lives in)!

Another one joke: our common friend who is an ethnographer has a theory that this village's name should be pronounced 'Hat'ki' while all the villagers say it 'Haćki'.

Hitler's mistake was refusing to borrow any more paper from them... He simply printed his own.

Once free from the crippling usury of the privately owned banks - instantly Germany went from having the worst economy in Europe to being the most prosperous, technologically advanced nation in the world (again), with virtually zero unemployment.

If only our own governments had the courage to do the same.

Yes, of course - that those six-pointed stars are on those usurious bills of fiat money (hidden prominently in plain sight) is just a coincidence...

Of course, of course...

And it's also just a coincidence that they own the banks which lend those GOVERNMENTS their money too, right?

Of course!

(http://christconquers.files.wordpress.com/2011/01/bankers-the-house-always-wins.jpg)

As for the star (perfectly centered; perfectly placed in the upright orientation {as they all are}) represented as a snowflake... well they had to hide it (prominently in plain sight) somewhere!

As for the snowflakes themselves being six-pointed... Satan is also known as "the prince of the power of the air" isn't he?

Some info about Manila, the capital city of the Philippines:
Quote
Manila is by far the largest metropolitan area in the Philippines, and the second largest in Southeast Asia after Jakarta, Indonesia. It is the commercial, administrative, cultural center and chief seaport of the Philippines. About 12 percent of the population of the Philippines is concentrated in the Manila metropolitan area. Manila is also the major destination for tourists who visit the Philippines. Coconut trees, giant kaleidoscopic lamp posts, and various cafes line the Baywalk, the perfect location for tourists to view the afternoon sunset.

"A beast rose from the sea
it started to blaspheme
You watch out, satan might get you
He will never let you go
Jesus can help, He has won
He is the Messiah
in Him you must believe

Don't let satan treat you as a friend
Satan comes to collect his souls
Jesus saves you if you want to
It's up to you to make the choice
give your life to Jesus Christ

Jesus is the one and only
He was crucified for your life
You got to have faith in the Lord
He'll save you from eternal death
give your life to Jesus Christ

You've got a choice, that you must make
It's up to you, to live or die "

This was taken in St. Mina's Cathedral in Alexandria, where Pope St. Kyrillos is buried.  Look behind the person.

I'm curious, it is normal to put a halo around the saint's head in Coptic Orthodoxy, correct? Perhaps this icon was written before he was made a saint, and they hadn't gotten around to adding the halo yet? Nevertheless, if that picture was taken after he reposed, that is amazing!

He just passed away in the 1970s.  Canonization takes 50 years.  But the people and priests already address him as a saint.  But yes, you're absolutely right.  We do add halos for canonized saints.

The glorious saviour of the "Belarussian people of Podlachia".
What is your problem? At least 400.000 Poles evicted from Białystok voivodship and Kresy compared to 161 Orthodox?
Why don't you move to Belarus? What's keeping you from moving there? There you can cry about Poland as much as you want. The majority of Orthodox accept the Polish state.

Deportations from border territories in 1939–1941

Several waves of forced resettlement occurred from the territories on the Western borders. These territories included Murmansk Oblast and the recently annexed lands: parts of Poland and Romania (about 20,000 people: the men were deported to Siberia, while the women and children to Kazakhstan), and the Baltic States.

In territories annexed from Poland (the Kresy territories and the Białystok Voivodeship (1919-1939)), the initial wave of repression of 1939 was in a way a continuation of the Polish operation of the NKVD and was rationalized as conviction of "social enemies", or "enemies of the people": military, police and administrative personnel, large landowners, industrialists, merchants. They were usually sentenced to 8–20 years of labor camps. In addition, the population along Poland's Eastern border, as well as forest-guards and railroad workers were interned. Massive deportations of the Polish population into remote areas of the Soviet Union took place in 1940–1941.

Estimates of the total number of deported Poles vary between 400,000 and 1.6 million people.

On 23 June 1940 Lavrenty Beria, head of the NKVD, ordered the Murmansk Oblast to be cleaned of "foreign nationals", both Scandinavians and all other nationalities. People of Finnish, Swedish, and Norwegian (see also "Kola Norwegians") ethnicities were moved to Karelo-Finnish SSR. Germans, Koreans, Chinese, and others were moved to Altay.

Deportations of "exiled settlers" from Baltic States (Lithuanians, Latvians, and Estonians) and annexed part of Romania (Bessarabia and Northern Bukovina) were carried out in May–June 1941.

In 1941 a significant number[quantify] of Poles were amnestied and freed from "special settlement" (but still barred from border territories).

Fr. Popiełuszko was a Belarusian. His friends (I have met one of them) mention that he spoke in Belarusian to his mother.

I won't respond to your silly theories here as it's not the right place.

And also... a question:

I noticed that soufliotiki shared her photo/image as an attachment.

Is that something we should all be doing?... Or is it OK to just post them as I have been, in the body of the post?

I guess the only consideration would be memory-usage/bandwidth or whatever?...

Anyone?

Or it could easily be seen that way, at least.

I had never seen melons in the shape of a cube or pyramid before... just novel pictures, that's all.

These were not 'renovations' but 'construction works'. They were completed (at least externally, IDK what is happening inside that Church because I visited it once a few years ago).

This was taken today, Saturday evening at Vespers.  The Cross was about to be brought out (3rd Sunday of Great Lent - Sunday of the Cross).

It was a cloudy day and the church was dark.  However, when the priest opened the Royal Gates, all of a sudden a shaft of sunlight broke through the clouds and shining through a window illuminated the flower bedecked Cross, lying on the Altar.

There was an audible gasp from the faithful, for the Cross seemed to "glow", and it was the ONLY thing that the sun was shining on.

Thanks!

No, I'm not a photographer.  I have just a regular point and shoot camera, that is ALWAYS with me!

I find Orthodoxy fascinating and it brings me such joy...I can't help but try to capture what I see and share with others.

(If you're on Facebook, I have all the photos from all the Orthodox churches I've visited in the last few years - available to "everyone", not just "friends".)

I'm glad you liked them!  :)

Any idea who did the iconography in the altar area? It reminds me of the iconography in St. Michael's Antiochian Orthodox Church in Greensburg, PA, which I assume was done by Nicholas Papas (who communes there and gives brief talks about icons). Regardless of who did it, it's very nice.

The Church maybe was build and named ,because the people and Clergy ,Have a Strong devotion to this saint, or the main contributor to the building fund wants his patron saint [slavska slava]  name on the church  or some one experienced some miracle of healing and decided to raise up a church to honor the saint......Many scenarios are possible in building and dedicating a church to a saint....There's several Serbian orthodox Churches dedicated or named for this saint across the country and maybe more in the balkans.....they may all contain pieces of his relics as well....Hope this clarifies it some....

I'm guessing that's an Orthodox mass and not an RC one. If so, I'm glad to see that they use San Damian's cross since it represents an authentically Roman tradition. Byzantine iconography is Roman too but since Roman's also have their own uniquely Western tradition of iconography why not to use it.

Many people do this whilst praying, usually you cross your arms by placing them just under your shoulders.

I saw this three months ago. I think that some Czechs created this cult. An example of how idiotic people become once they leave Christianity is the modern Czech spirituality. Looking at the internet, you find Czechs pissing on crosses, on church walls, but you also see them kissing tarot rings and wearing pagan symbols like we wear crosses.

The one on the woman is too small but the little boy looks like he has St. Alexander Nevskiy.

Prince Andrew’s daughter Princess Bea’s royal wedding hat looks like ... it should.

Ridiculous and clownish... just like the whole 'royal wedding' nonsense.

Is what's her name even a princess? If not - then how is this even a 'royal' wedding?

And really... why does anyone even care?

It's not like these people are important or anything. The monarchy and the royalty were important because they had power... they ran things.

Now they're nothing but figureheads... a distraction from the outrageous usury, taxation and the destruction of the value of our money.

And the crowd cheers...

Mother's letter to teacher:

Dear Mrs. Jackson,

I wish to clarify that I am not now, nor have I ever been, an exotic dancer.  

I work at Bunnings and I told my daughter how hectic it was last week after the floods hit.  

I told her we sold out every single shovel we had and then I found one more in stock and several people were fighting over who would get it.    

Her picture doesn't show me dancing around a pole. It's supposed to depict me selling the last shovel we had in the store.

From now on I will remember to check her homework  before she hands it in.

Sincerely,

Erica Cameron

Above your icon you provide a link to the Church (http://liturgia.cerkiew.pl/index.php?ln=en) you're attending...

On that page, I found the following beside an icon similar to the one you're using here:

Quote
Patron feast in Orthodox Pastoral Point
We invite you to worship the patron saint of the Orthodox Pastoral Point - St. Gregory (Peradze).

I don't believe anyone should be worshiping any Saints at all.

I don't believe anyone should be worshiping any Saints at all.

Contrary to the oft-seen distinction between "worship" and "veneration" the word "worship" is broad enough that it could simply mean veneration or honor. If you read a lot of early modern English literature, you'll see it used in this sense very often. Also, some modern liturgical texts still use it this way. For instance, in the Jordanville Prayer Book, the Troparion of the Sunday of Orthodoxy reads "We worship Thine immaculate icon..."

This is terrible I think... terrible!

The whole reason that we are able to depict an image of Christ our God in an icon is that He was a real, tangible Man. If someone would have had a camera back then they could have taken a photo of Him.

He did not look like that.

An elaborately carved canopy, called a kouvouklion, stands over the Epitaphios, the icon depicting Christ after he has been removed from the cross. The event was a prelude to the liturgy of the Anastasis or Resurrection, at midnight Saturday into Easter morning."

He did not look like that.

You never know, it could have been some type of mutation  ???

Do not want.

This is terrible I think... terrible!

The whole reason that we are able to depict an image of Christ our God in an icon is that He was a real, tangible Man. If someone would have had a camera back then they could have taken a photo of Him.

He did not look like that.

Nice. Yay Ireland.

It's at the Rock of Cashel (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rock_of_Cashel)...

Quote from: Wikipedia
"The Rock of Cashel was the traditional seat of the kings of Munster for several hundred years prior to the Norman invasion. Few remnants of the early structures survive; the majority of buildings on the current site date from the 12th and 13th centuries. Cashel is reputed to be the site of the conversion of the King of Munster by St. Patrick in the 5th century. The picturesque complex has a character of its own and is one of the most remarkable collections of Celtic art and medieval architecture to be found anywhere in Europe.

According to local mythology, the Rock of Cashel originated in the Devil's Bit, a mountain 20 miles(30 km) north of Cashel when St. Patrick banished Satan from a cave, resulting in the Rock's landing in Cashel."

Oh, how I'd love to go there!

Lots of his Iceland shots (above is in Iceland) look completely otherworldly (see below for example). I'd love to go there. And I don't mind the cold so its right up my alley.

Yes, you have misconstrued my intentions. I initially intended to put T.D. Jakes on the right, but I thought that would be a bit too "straw man." John McArthur and R.C.

Nationalism in Construction: The Memorial Church of St. Sava on Vračar Hill in Belgrade

Bojan Aleksov

p. 47-72

Résumé | Plan | Texte | Notes | Citation | Auteur



Résumé





The role of St. Sava, whom the late Serbian Patriarch German praised as the “Sun of Serbian heaven” in Serbian oral tradition during medieval and Ottoman period was to al-ways watch over Serbian people. In the age of nationalism however, the Serbian cult of St. Sava acquired different tasks representing and reproducing, depending on circumstances, powerful images of national golden age, national reconciliation and unification and/or martyrdom for the Church and the nation. For more than a century now, a church dedicated to this saint is being built in Belgrade, aimed to epitomize and monumentalize these images. After years of oblivion the Serbian Church in mid-1990s drew attention back to the St. Sava Church and began holding services on the plateau in front of the construction site or recently even inside the unfinished church. In the atmosphere of the complete breakdown of the Serbian society, where basic economic and political security could not be provided, not to mention spiritual or cultural revival, “Serbian National Cathedral” was again hailed as a celebration of “victory over the enemy” and the segment of its role as the act of societal repentance for the communist era was lost. In the year 2000, after the overthrow of Milošević and almost a ten-years break, the work has begun again. More than a century after its construction was initiated, the Church on Vračar Hill is still awaiting completion and to assume the monumental and memorial role it was assigned.

According to legend in the place of the lake there had been the Switez city, a very beautiful one. Once invaders came to Navahrudak land. Old and young men went to fight and in the city only helpless wives and daughters left. When the invaders found themselves in front of the gate to the city and the Stitez women were already ready to die in the flames, but not to surrender to the enemies, a miracle occurred. The earth parted and swallowed up the town. In its place an extremely beautiful lake spilled.

Where did you find a statue of Nestorius? I am curious because the only church I know of that venerates him (ACOE) does not (as far as I know) make use of statues.

I Google'd it. Now, I am not 100% sure if that statue is of Nestorius, but, I have seen it attributed to him on several occasions.

P.S. I feel silly asking this question, but, you did get the (rather unfunny) joke implied in my post, right?

Arius was also know for his "marketing" campaign, so to speak. To better and further spread his doctrines, he created catchy songs and taught them along with his preachings at harbours, specially to sailors, because he knew they were going to travel along all the known world taking his ideas with them.

I read his book "Desiring God: Confessions of a Christian Hedonist" years ago, when I was still Protestant. I like the book back then, but now I would probably find it very unOrthodox. The thesis of the book is that the purpose of man is to glorify God by enjoying Him forever. A neat idea that appealed very much to me at the time. But now that I'm Orthodox, I realize that the experience of God is not always pleasant or enjoyable. The experience of God is inextricably linked to the Cross. Of course, Christ enables us to bear our Cross, and the Holy Spirit is our ubiquitous Comfortor. But the Christian life is arduous, and there is no nove theological innovation that can help us escape the struggle.

To be fair, John Piper might not disagree with this. But I am now very leary of all these famous Protestant preachers who keep trying to put their own unique heterodox spin on the ancient Christian Gospel.

If you don't mind my asking, what does he do? My father works (pt) for FEMA and goes out a couple times a year when a hurricane or something happens. Seems like a crappy job to me, from what I gather... working basically as long as there's daylight, usually in bad weather/a hot sun all that time, but I guess it's nice to get a bunch of hours in at once.

To be as vague as possible ;D he works on more of the labor side of that, for a private company.

They get work for a ton of different things, but post-disasters is the time where they literally work around the clock in houses, commercial buildings, outside, to restore basic functions (water, electricity) and clean up the area. It's already an insane amount of hours, and after the earthquake and hurricane that hit the area, he's been non-stop. He came home around 7 PM last night, and that was a miracle.

The first Orthodox baptism I witnessed was in a horse trough. It was at a ROCOR parish with no pews, men and women separated, and all that other "traditional propriety" stuff. :angel:

What's wrong with that? Before we had a baptismal font built permanently into the narthex of our church--our church building dates back only to 1996, though our parish community is much older than that--a horse trough was all we had for adult baptisms.

The attempted bedroom eyes photo of celticfan does fit quite well with the Bond pic, though. Well played.

What the heck? !!!  Don't you people see that with the body I was trying to represent the boyish charm and youthful vibrance of Orthonorm, yet with the head retain his rugged good looks, intelligence and sophistication? Honest!* Come on, give me the benefit of the doubt!

The original pic was going to be a bunch of people I've seen in chat, but I couldn't really figure out how to make it work, so I settled for just a couple awkward paintbrushed images.  ;D

I've never heard your voice, akimori, come on chat and share it with me (that sounds somewhat creepy, and I don't mean it to be).

But I was actually complementing you.  I am usually mistaken for being at least a two years older than I am (occasionally three or four - though I was once told that someone thought I was 25...but anyways), and so I know that when I am 25, people will probably think I'm closer to thirty.  Then when I'm thirty, they'll think I'm closer to forty, and so on.

You on the other hand, look young.

This is a joke.  Though, tangentially related, I was surprised to see a person who I presume was an ASU student, walking around in a niqab.  I see plenty of hijabs, but no niqabs other than that one.

Niqabs can actually be sexy (especially if you have good eyes) which is why Muslim women argue all of the time about how to wear it (some have "bump-it" type Khaleeji styles or wear really elaborate head scarves) and how loose to wear the abayah. It is a headache to read through Muslim women arguing about someone having overplucked eyebrows and a headscarf that's too tight. Talk about the letter of the law.

If the guy's tie is pointing sideways inside the bus then something very fishy is indeed going on. I'll be sure to alert the authorities.

This is actually a new Holy Thursday tradition.  After celebrating the Mystical Supper, the bishops make a procession with their swords (or light sabers) in honor of the Lord's words, "and he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one (Luke 22:36)," which He spoke on His way from the upper room to the Mt. of Olives.    ;)

mud pleveling . . . lulz.

how much time did i waste in a basement at university at a unix terminal modifying diku?

Good Lord, we have yet another thing in common.  I was the only non-computer science person in our computer lab who even knew what UNIX machine was, let alone using it, although I was more of a MUSHer than a MUDer.

Let's hope this "having things in common" stops soon. Otherwise things might get "weird".

No, picking on people who think their English is so great that they can spend hours on an art project involving English but not spare two minutes to pick up a dictionary to double-check their work.    :laugh:

I love looking at these images of Titan, Saturn's largest moon. Beneath the serene looking clouds

(http://astronomy.nmsu.edu/tharriso/ast110/titan1.jpg)

We find a bleak, windy surface. With possible ice chunks (maybe water ice).

(http://astronomy.nmsu.edu/tharriso/ast110/titaniceblocks.jpg)

Methane rivers!

(http://astronomy.nmsu.edu/tharriso/ast110/titanriver.jpg)

And even a methane lake (dark area at bottom)!

Here's a composite map from the Northern Hemisphere.

Now that is a picture of the day. It's gorgeous.

Thanks, Biro!  It was just after Vespers last Saturday.  Our bishop, His Grace Bishop Daniel, was in town to help us celebrate our Parish Feast Day - Protection of the Mother of God (which technically is tomorrow, but, His Grace was already booked for next Sunday).  Since it was a Feast day for the Theotokos everything was "blue" themed...and I was tickled when I actually found a dozen BLUE roses, which I mixed in with the white.  I'm glad you like the photo!  It was a great weekend!

I agree. I took the message as a general statement. Though, I'd like to think that there have been societies/cultures that at one point or another didn't strongly exude these qualities.

It's not possible to truly grieve for someone you don't know personally, whether a celebrity or the starving masses (a million is a statistic). Only Christ discerns the true costs of sin. Though, yes our priorities in terms of ideals are terribly screwed up (and always have been).

That one is definitely my humour. Most of your pictures have been good - can't say that I've found any that I would label offensive. Some haven't appealed to me, but that's just personal taste. I know you're not out to offend. And I do thank you for some really good ones.

The most recent photo reminds me of an incident in church where the reader said "to the Jews and the geeks"  :o I thought I may have misheard, but then noticed an altar boy trying almost unsuccessfully to stifle his laughter  :D. Just about lost it then.

"Romanian orthodox priests follow the relics of Saint Andrew’s head in Bucharest, Romania, backdropped by the Romanian parliament building, the world’s largest civilian administrative building, formerly known as the House of the People, built at the request of communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. According of the Romanian Orthodox Church Saint Andrew initiated the conversion to Christianity of the ancestors of the Romanian people by preaching in Black Sea bordering eastern Dobrogea province. The head was brought from Greece and is expected to draw large numbers of pilgrims for the annual week-long celebration of the Romanian capital’s patron saint, Saint Dimitrie Bassarabov."

This isn't cute. This is dangerous; those are bears! Even at that age they can do some serious damage.

I know Christians can put their hand in a snake pit and handle snakes but i don't think that dispensation stretches to bears.

My guess is that the bear cubs know the monk, and it is well-known in many places that monasteries and bears have a 'relationship.'  This is seen much more often in Eastern Europe and Russia, and we here in the West are not so familiar with it.  The surprising aspect of it is that the bears never attack the monks, perhaps in part because the monks never carry food and don't act aggressively the way we do.  After a long period of a monastery's existence, the bears in an area become imprinted to recognize the 'nice' monks from the 'not nice' villagers.

Animal imprinting is powerful.

Nah.  That's the same face/hand gesture I make when the dog is trying to lick my face which is what it looks like the little bear is about to do.  That's probably the safest place that Monk could be.  Seeing as he has a face at the time the photo was taken, we can assume that mama-bear considers him to be a good influence on her children.  If anyone tried to mess with him, mama-bear ain't far away.  And the Old Testament tells us what bears do to people who cause problems for religious figures.

Rhein II, a photograph of the Rhine River by Andreas Gursky

 Although estimated at $2.5 – $3.5 million, the photograph went under Christie’s hammer for $4,338,500. It beat out Cindy Sherman’s Untitled #96, which sold for a whopping $3.89 million at a Christie’s sale this May.

Our little daughter - Hosanna Maryam/Welete Mikael - was baptized one year ago today, on St. Michael's Day. She departed in the Lord the next afternoon, escorted to the realm of angels by St. Michael himself. I miss her SO MUCH! What excuse do I have for my sins, for I saw Christ Himself as I gazed upon my daughter's countenance during the 11 weeks that I was able to hold her in my unworthy arms. May her prayers be with us, and may her memory be eternal!

Memory Eternal.

So sorry Gebre.

EDIT: Thought writing the following might be self-indulgent. Well, I dunno.

This truly breaks my heart.

Was going to post how lovely time I had a the DL today in the random topics thread, since I am one of the few men who show up on a week day morning. Lotsa women with kids that need help usually.

One women brought all her children and I rarely get more true joy in life than now being able play with the kids. Help them venerate the icons. Etc.

Sometimes I get choked up just seeing the very young children being Communed. Or a child in her mother's arms kissing the Theotokos to only quickly turn in her mother's arms to kiss her.

That is all to say, I can't possibly imagine how grievous this must be for you. Your daughter, you, and your entire family will be in my prayers over this week, a time set aside to reconnect with those we love but not have seen in some time, in Thanksgiving.

I hope this is received in the spirit it was meant and was not self-indulgent. And I am more than choked up now in the middle of a lab. So I better go get cleaned up.

Know that more than a few I am sure weep with you.

"Burqin, West Bank — A Palestinian Christian man decorates the Byzantine-era St. George's Orthodox Church to prepare for Christmas in the West Bank village of Burqin, which is considered one of the oldest Christian holy places in the world. According to Christian teachings, Jesus had passed through Burqin on his way to Jerusalem from Nazareth and cured 10 lepers, which made the church a pilgrimage site."

The monastery is actually norwegian, but I think those who have painted the church are serbians. The abbott is our archimandrite father Johannes. The picture is from the concecration.

Here you can watch some pictures of the construction :)

I can't see the icon very clearly but I think it may be saint Triphon of Petsjenga to whom the monastery is dedicated to.

IrishHermit has been given exactly what he has earned. In fact, I have extended to him mercy by ignoring the numerous calls to ban him and give him instead ONE LAST CHANCE to show us he can act in a responsible manner.

Interesting picture.Which is the meaning of it?

I'm not sure what the "author" meant by it....but, I see it as - we live for the moment and don't see beyond our immediate needs.

The guy is stuck in a cold hole.
He's cold so he destroys the ladder to build the fire to stay warm.
However, in fact he could have simply climbed that ladder and gotten out of the hole entirely...

....but, his current lifestyle is keeping him in that hole.

This can reflect on our lives and how we live them daily.

Are we so obssessed with the here and now....that we don't look at our future...and don't have a goal.

Are we so lost...that we could miss the ladder to Heaven because we are living only for the day....to satisfy our daily needs.

...that's what I got out of it.  :)

That is a very powerful image, and a profound interpretation of it Liza. I'm afraid it defines my own life too well.

He was playing at grandma's today and was left alone for 2 minutes and got into the markers.  When asked why he colored on himself he stated, "I didn't color myself.  They are owies."  He then proceeded to stick out his lower lip and gave a sad look.  Only two years old and already lying!  Couldn't be mad though.  He is so sweet.

So how many of us have more than one pair of shoes, more than the clothes on our backs, food in the fridge and cabinets and money in the bank or vault, and don't spend every possible minute doing charity?

I thought the sentiment rather appropriate for Lent.

The sentiment is well taken. It was not meant as a criticism directed at you.

I just truly wonder why we hold put forth such strong words and then live how we do.

St. Paul had it right. It's madness.

But this is simple, if a little difficult. And it is just a little. I've been "homeless".

Give all that stuff away. That ain't hard. Where I live, I could just open my door and say come get it. It would out within a few hours.

We just got out of the Parable of the Judgement.

I shudder every time.

Taking into account that most of that Churches were built in the Eastern Catholic era or slightly later (Russian neobaroque) - I have to agree. Luckily newly built churches have more traditional iconography.

I've actually developed a liking to more "Western" looking iconography over the years. I used to make quite a stink out of it but now, I quite like it. I love the look of that church. Inside and out. Glory to God.

But you see the beauty, and you capture it in such a beautiful way. Only a true artist with a beautiful soul can do such a thing.

This is my favorite painting by my father, which he left to me. He painted merely as a hobby, but I think his art was fantastic. This is a quote of his that discusses his approach to watercolor painting. My Papa was man of great depth, but it was difficult to peel back the layers. I think his love for art and music enabled his soul to breathe and revealed the beauty of his heart. I miss him so much already.

 "When you face a sheet of watercolor paper - plain and white - it frightens you knowing that you wish to create something on it that others will enjoy. Once you dip the brush into the water and paint and then begin to apply it to the paper, it totally absorbs you. The only other thing I have done which accomplished the same feeling was a solo flight in an airplane. When you paint, start with a subject you really like- for example, a flower, a barn, mountains. Paint from the actual subject or from a photograph. Mix colors to get unusual effects. Try to evoke a feeling, because a photograph can do a better job than an artist in getting the actual details correct. The reason Van Gogh is my favorite artist is because he evokes feelings." -Freddie Wood- (My father)

Xenos can carry the epitaphion because he is a big donor.  You can do virtually anything if you have money.  ;)

Don't be so cynical. The film work of Tom Hanks is filled with Orthodox messages...

Money Pit - Decries consumerism and materialism, deals with attachment and betrayal in relationships

Big - Shows us how easily we can be misled by assumptions, and also teaches us to accept who we are, and not dream so much of who we want to be

Castaway - Is there a greater examination of the plight of the modern American? Adrift and lonely, with our hopes all too often mirages. Yet we keep going!

And so on...
