I'm not going to be posting as much on OC.Net as before. I might stop in once in a while though. But I've come to realize that real life is more important.

That's the most beautiful picture of Orthodoxy I've seen.  Thank you Alexandra for showing is the meaning of Orthodox life.  I had a happy childhood, and my grandparents were devoted Christians, but I wish we'd had Orthodoxy to bind us closer together like that.

Hecma, what's the story behind that icon?

All I know is that it depicts St. Seraphim and righteous nuns of the Diveevo monastery.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Quote from: Seekingtrue
Yes we who are far from sainthood we can recognize a living saint and I'm talking from personal experience.Yes they are gentle soo gentle it can not be described it is like gentleness and humility in one and also they have this light this energy it's beyond words...and when you are near them you feel ecstatic and very happy
