^^ How did you manage to have such nice light on the cross? Only by candles?

There is a halogen light fixture attached to the ceiling above.

Great :) It looks so nice.

Thank you Dominika!
Let us open our mouths and sing hymns of salvation. Come and fall down in the house of the Lord and say: Pardon our sins, you who hung upon the cross and rose from the dead, and yet are forever in the bosom of the Father.

+ Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto the ages of ages. Amen. +

Beautiful!
“God,”
The words rumbled:
“There is much suffering,
But the church is alive. "

 “How long, Archpriest, are we to suffer thus?” I answered: “Until our very death, Markovna!” And she replied, with a sigh: “So be it, Petrovich, let us plod on.” - Life of Avvakum by Himself

Nastasya, Nastasya, be
patient and do not cry:
Not every happiness
Comes in the clothing of fortune.

St. Avvakum, pray for us!

St. Ambrose, pray for us!

I change my picture daily to reflect feast days. Ask me!

Here's my icon corner.  I am lucky enough to have a large Eastward facing wall in my bedroom.  I have an electric votive standing in the center...and it gently lights the whole corner even without candles...so, when I wake in the middle of night....their softness comforts me.

I have accumulated a number of icons over the years...and each is near and dear to my heart.  When I am away.... I actually miss them.



This is the center icon.  It is handwritten from a monastery in Ukraine - "Icon Not Made by Human Hands"....it is my absolute favorite.


This one is also handwritten from a monastery in Ukraine - "The Mother of God, Softener of Evil Hearts."  The image doesn't do it justice.  The gold work is amazing.


This one is also handmade from a Ukrainian Monastery.  I picked this one up in December from the Lavra. 







Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Agreed!  Some really beautiful icons.   :D
Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no clue, so there's that.

So what! Does it suddenly make it less of an icon.

I question your Orthodoxy.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.
