Who here can tell me they don't want to join up after seeing this picture? Can you really turn your back on stuffed animals and children?  Awww....

I think you may be able to purchase it from Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville, but I'm not 100% sure.  I have one, but got it from an icon shop in Russia... don't know how I'd put you in touch with them  Smiley

Andreas,
You might either try contacting Holy Trinity Monastary, where they might have it in their bookstore, though I haven't been there recently, so I don't know if they still have it.  Or you could contact Holy Epiphany ROCOR Church in Boston, where the original icon is.  Here is their website. http://www.bostonrusschurch.org/index_en.html

Aww c'mon! Give us a break! It's okay for Orthodox to have a sense of humour.

The Metropolitan was not being attacked at all. It was simply an observation of the similar look of between the Metropolitan and how Tim Allen looked in the move The Santa Clause.

Hmmm...an Orthodox Language?  Church Slavonic which was codified by Saints Cyril and Methodius for the sole purpose of spreading the Gospel message of Christ is an Orthodox Language.  The language of the Pagan philosophers is not an Orthodox Language.

I wish all a profitable Great Week.

That's how you can tell an ethnic Orthodox Church from a "convert" Orthodox Church: the age of the girls wearing head coverings.  I have never seen girls under 10ish wearing head coverings in an ethnic Orthodox Church; I compare that to seeing 4 year olds with head coverings at some Churches and wanting to cringe.

I agree. It is also important for them to understand that while they are in church, they are not supposed to talk - at all. They need to understand that if they have any questions, they should wait until they are outside the church and then ask their father or older brother.

In Russian tradition, females didn't have to wear headcoverings until their marriage.  Once they were married in some villiages there was even a ceremony for the putting on of the platok (scarf, whatever).  It irks me to no end when people (and I have seen this time & again, 95% of the time from non-ethnic) even put scarves on infants just baptised.  People who do that should read up on orthopraxis themselves, rather than try to foist their interpretation onto others (which some tend to do, gives me agida! :-).  I'm not saying there's anything wrong with girls wearing headcoverings (they look especially cute in hats), but somehow people now have the impression that that was always the norm, which it WAS NOT!

This is interesting.  In the OCA church I attend, almost none of the women were any headcoverings, including the priest's wife.  Is this unusual in OCA parishes?

In my OCA parish, we have around 10-20% of the women who wear headcoverings, most of them are immigrants from Eastern Europe.  Of the four OCA priests I know very well in my area, only the wife of one of the four regularly covers her head.  

Personally I am glad when women wear headcoverings as it is less distractful to me a single and sinful man, and I would say that many men here probably agree with me.  Why not try to positively reinforce this aspect of pietism by complementing the headcoverings of the ladies who wear them and perhaps offering to donate 5 or so scarves and a basket for them to be placed in the vestibule.

In my OCA parish, the majority of women do wear some kind of headcovering, though a lot don't. It seems to be a personal decision. And the little girls sometimes ask to wear a scarf or hat so as to be more "grown-up" and "dressed up". Remember it hasn't been that long ago when wearing a hat to church (any church) was considered proper. I remember my (Lutheran) mother's  and (Catholic) grandmother's gorgeous hats! Although I personally feel like a doofus in a hat (more like Mr. Ed   Grin and less like Audrey Hepburn) and wear a scarf.

That sounds like a good idea!  (Pray that I'll have the courage; I'm so new there, and I don't want to appear to be "wackadox.") Now to find some scarves that will actually do the job without being gaudy.

The trick, ladies, is finding the perfect style of hats for you.  :-)  If I wear a wide brim, I tend to look like a  mushroom, but narrow rimmed, or ones with no rim at all (ala 20s & 30s) look pretty good.  Sad to say though, that even hats sometimes bring on comments from the strictest of the "traditionalists."
