They are so happy!
 
It's nice.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

^It is interesting how he is wearing a Klobuk-like Monastic hat, similar to that of EO Bishops/Monks (except for it being green).

@WeldeMikael No problem! :)

I think the main difference between St. Athanasius and St. Gregory the Theologian is that the latter has a wider beard  ;D

Lol! But for the record, the Saint next to Saint Athanasius in my image is Saint Irenaeus of Lyons, not St. Gregory.

Thank you for bringing this thought to my attention. From what I can see it dates back to 2010.  I could criticize it under very particular circumstances, but as a general rule it is great.
