Nice start Smiley (though some would question why I call it a start, and would say that's all you need)

Regarding sideways pics, you should be able to fix it with pretty much any graphics program... Microsoft paint, Irfanview, etc.

my icon corner, which is currently residing in my closet here at college. sadly I cannot have candles or use the censer, and technically I'm not allowed to use tacks, but I usually fill them in at the end of the year so they don't notice...

the closet already had the dresser setup in the little niche so I figured it'd be a good place. I'd use my eastern wall, but I would have to place my prayer books and stuff elsewhere.

I got most of my icons while in Greece. they were a lot cheaper over than than here in the US (well, they were absolutely everywhere in Greece, even in the supermarkets).
I had no idea you could fit an entire Church in a closet.  Smiley

No one went for this . . . really?

I must otherwise the universe will get mad at me.

Gotta tour of a "house" once in Romania, replete with matching his and hers coffins handmade and at the ready.

My buddy's parents here in the States purchased his grave plot and had his tombstone made without the end date before he was born.

Death speculation is a hot industry. I thought it would have been awesome if they had picked an end date.

No, it has an end date (1962), we just haven't gotten around to putting it in the cemetery yet. Hopefully within the next 40 years or so.

Isn't that the pribavlenie uma icon?  It is for students, those with memory problems, and for those with mental retardation I think.  It is one of my favorite ones.  I guess it does kind of look like the Infant of Prague.  Our Lord and Lady are both wearing cone-like dresses.  I think it is beautiful.

He had this painted by the man who painted the icon of St. John which is above his relics in San Francisco:



It is the same icon, except St. John is holding the Cathedral in the icon above his relics, rather than a staff.

Timon and JAH....

Both are beautiful in each of their different approaches!  How very lovely!

I was blessed to visit ST John's relics while visiting my son in San Francisco last February.
I was able to attend the Moleban and venerate his relics.  I brought back Holy oil from the lampada that is illuminating his remains.  If you go to the website of the cathedral you can add prayer requests online, and order the Holy oil there.  I am so richly blessed though...my son just arrived to help me through my next chemo round and he made a trip down there and brought me more oil!  So thoughtful!

Your friend JAH has a real blessing in having had that icon written for him.  It is truly brilliant!

Oh..and Samkim...I LOVE your color scheme!  The wall paint is outstanding and really sets off the icons!
Beautiful!


Thanks for posting...I am still trying to figure out how to do mine..ipad's are wonderful but I haven't mastered the knack of pic posts yet!

Depends, I think. If it means you have to sacrifice, it's not a big deal. Or if you have that kind of money to spend just laying about, and if not for the icons you'd end up spending it on the Collectors Ultimate Greatest Blu-Ray Edition of something, then it's not a big deal. If you usually give alms, give to your Church, etc., and that giving would suffer because you decide to buy the icons, then that's a bit more difficult. If someone else would have to sacrifice so you could buy then, that's also a bit more difficult.  Two other things to consider: $200 probably wouldn't even get you a small comissioned icon; and it's not about the dollar figure anyway, but more about if what you are getting is valuable and helpful to you.

I gave away most of my icons to family last year, though I did keep an icon of Jesus and my prayer books. The reaction to the gifts were interesting. My gram, for instance, seemed confused, because she already had religious pictures, so what did she need another one of the Virgin Mary for? My Father and stepmother each had a different reaction to the diptych I gave them. My Father, raised a Catholic, and also someone who has remarked positively about Orthodox icons to me before, was really happy with the gift; my stepmother was very confused who the lady was, and a bit embarrassed when it was explained to her. My Mother and stepfather were also confused, but in that Protestant, quasi-iconoclastic, "I don't know what to do with this" type of way. Anyway, so yeah, most of my icons were gone this year, and I haven't really had much money to start rebuilding. So for now this is what my icon corner looks like...

I'm attaching my arrangement for the Holy 50 days in the main room.
The other icons I keep in various places of my flat. The first reason is that some of them "belongs" to my mum (she's roman-catholic but she very venerates the holy icons), the second one is that some years ago I had an idea that it would be better for me that wherever I look at, I see the icons – just to not have bad thoughts. But now when I’m praying I don’t know where to stay in my room; I usually choose my Slava’s icon (which I’m attaching too) or for much longer prayers I sit before the icon of the Theotokos that I was given from my priest for my chrismation in the Orthodox Church (the third picture; there is also the candle I was keeping during the service). So, I’m planning do something similar as you did: one place for all church items (just buy a table under the Slava’s icon) and only for Nativity and Pascha arrange something in the main room. Now some my friends say that when they come into my room they feel like in a chapel Wink

Will Elder Cleopa of Romania be canonized? Romania has the longest list of Orthodox elders listed here  http://www.orthodoxphotos.com/Orthodox_Elders/Romanian/Others1/ and http://www.orthodoxphotos.com/Orthodox_Elders/Romanian/Others2/ And many miraculous stories as here: http://www.orthodoxphotos.com/Orthodox_Elders/Romanian/Fr._Gheorghe_Calciu_Dumitreasa/ Orthodox Church of Romania has produced many holy elders in modern times. Skeptics too I guess.

Indeed they were. They were mostly place holders until I could either mount them or buy mounted ones, though I'm not sure what I would have done with them then.
