in medieval imagery a parrot was a symbol for "the word made flesh" (because they could repeat human speech).

The cover of my mixtape "Unafraid of da seas".

I like the color scheme, though.
Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no idea, so there’s that.

Pray for me, a sinner.

For Fr. Stamatis's work, it's tame enough that I like it too.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.
