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:

Beautiful posters! I have downloaded and printed both of them!
