“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!

Not sure which is worse for a baseball uniform:  wool or satin.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Have no idea how they dealt with that. Tough guys.

Can I just be a PDF-fearer? I don't want to have my System 32 circumcised.
Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Amen.

Yeah. I get what the artist was going for, and it's a nice sentiment. But, that execution tho...



Or maybe I'm a hypocrite for defending that Last Judgment icon and not this  :-\

Excuse me for putting this here ~ but ~ didn't know where else ~ the upper ranch is in the mountains at about 6800 ft ~ there were signs of a rodent down in the cellar by the wine racks ~ so ~ I had thrown together this very effective box trap ~ last night I set it at the bottom of the stairs and this creature ~ who measures just over 1 foot long was inside ~ not sure if it has a name ~ but ```

This box trap is the most effective trap I've ever made ~ got the idea from youtube ```

1 patriarch and 1 metropolitan that's head of an autocephalus Church, in fact ;)
And most of these icons are so westernised (ah, Russian influence mixed with Roman Catholic one!)...  :(

In the Polish national railways work many old or medium-age ladies that read statements and announcments. That's English version prepared for them:



BAHAHAHA!
Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Amen.

Amazing.
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

After the elevation of a Fr. Peter to the priesthood in Omsk, Russia.
“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!

Finally things make a little bit of sense!
It also almost has the South Chicago accent built-in because there is no "three" but "tree" and "da" for "the"  ;D
Wishing to grant pardon for ancient debts, he who cancels the debts of all people came himself and dwelt among those who were estranged from his divine grace; and tearing apart the record of sin, he hears from everyone: Alleluia.

Metropolitan Alexios and Elder Efraim escort the Panagia Vimatarissa icon to the Panagia Chapel (Diakonia Retreat Center, Salem, SC)

This is a replica of the one at Vatopedi and I don't know why my Metropolis is blessed like this but it is.
