Beautiful icon cards! I think it's too late for me to get any this year, though. :(

I cannot believe it I have had this icon  about a year now and I mostly understood the obvious parts but I never knew that was meant to be Satan in the corner. Is he ever depicted like this in any other icons?
The sins I don't commit are largely due to the weakness of my limbs.
