  • May Orthodoxy become our orthopraxis
    • OrthodoxMysteries
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.

But it had not been in Tess's power - nor is it in anybody's power - to feel the whole truth of golden opinions while it is possible to profit by them. She - and how many more - might have ironically said to God with Saint Augustine, "Thou hast counselled a better course than thou hast permitted."

A number of them are Oriental Orthodox rather than Eastern Orthodox. Also, a number of them aren't even either of those. So I agree with iconodule's sentiments.

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