It would be wonderful for Fr. Seraphim Rose to be glorified. We need a saint in this day and age. Glory to God.

Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

If I'm not mistaken, this image was commissioned two or three years ago with the blessing of Abp. (now Metropolitan) Hilarion of Australia and New Zealand.

Pardon the pedantry, but it is not strictly correct to refer to such an image as an icon. Images such as these, painted of people who have not yet been "officially" glorified (without a halo, and with the title "Blessed", rather than "Saint") are not uncommon, but they really should be called iconographic-style portraits, not icons.

I'm not sure that this is correct. "Icon" simply means "Image".

Having an icon written is a good step toward it, as is his being the subject of a fairly sizable cult. I hope to see a new St. Seraphim beatified very soon (very soon being in the Orthodox world within about a hundred years).

What do you mean by 'officially'? Isn't Orthodox Saints recognize organically by the people?

St. Nekatrios died in 1920 and was made a saint in 1961.

If Blessed Seraphim Rose was on the same caliber of holiness as St. Nektarios, he will become a saint in the same order of time.  The following excerpt is from the Ionian Village website.

Quote
In this bed lay a paralytic, who once the undershirt landed upon him, was instantly healed and jumped out of bed praising God for his miraculous healing. This was the first of many miracles that St. Nektarios began to perform in death. The stories of these miracles, along with his body remaining completely in tact and emanating a magnificent fragrance for twenty years after his death, led the nuns at the monastery to venerate him as a Saint of the Church. Finally, in April of 1961, the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople further blessed St. Nektarios with a proclamation of Sainthood.
