Theotokos of Vladimir Icon
« on: November 11, 2014, 12:06:48 PM »

The Theotokos of Vladimir Icon is one of the icons, if not the icon I love most of all and I'm on a look out of one to hang on the wall of my bedroom.

so my question is, which online pages/ stores sells them both relatively cheap and in a good enough quality?

Also is it possible for me as an Catholic to get the icon blessed by an Orthodox Priest?

Thanks in advance for any answer I may receive:)

I'll let others recommend where you can buy a copy of this icon, but yes, you can get an icon blessed by an Orthodox priest even if you are not Orthodox.  Whether or not icons need to be blessed in the first place is another question.  ;)
How this relates to the coming Antichrist? I don't know...
