Note : Many of my posts (especially the ones antedating late 2012) do not reflect charity, tact, or even views I presently hold. Please forgive me for any antagonism I have caused.

Someone mentioned the Annunciation icon the other day. I couldn't find the post about it, so here is the picture of the stained glass window in my parish. Sorry I couldn't zoom in, but it's the one on the left.  :angel:

"Burqin, West Bank — A Palestinian Christian man decorates the Byzantine-era St. George's Orthodox Church to prepare for Christmas in the West Bank village of Burqin, which is considered one of the oldest Christian holy places in the world. According to Christian teachings, Jesus had passed through Burqin on his way to Jerusalem from Nazareth and cured 10 lepers, which made the church a pilgrimage site."
