May Orthodoxy become our orthopraxis

« on: February 21, 2010, 06:15:08 PM »

Today, on the Sunday of Orthodoxy, I served as an acolyte, and as we all went on procession with our icons...

in one hand I was holding a banner icon from behind our altar of Mary and Christ,
and in the other hand I held this Word-Wide-Orthodox icon of Mary and Christ:

It's beautiful, but perhaps a bit disingenuous, since a number of the icons are not Orthodox.

Beautiful posters! I have downloaded and printed both of them!
The Australian Aboriginal Theotokos (sixth from the left in the top row) was used for the cover of a book of poetry by my Archbishop here in Australia: http://catalogue.nla.gov.au/Record/3304096

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
