Beautiful church, too.
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.

I suppose it's a microphone



but it might be a Geiger counter as well.

They make TVP in Poland?  Cool!  TVP sure helps with Lent... better than just rice and beans all the time...

I was bored during my political science class, so I drew St. Mark of Ephesus trampling on the Pope, it is meant to be funny, nothing serious. Oh, yes, I can't draw, I know.

The first one is unnecessarily aggressive.

The second one is much better. If you like this, you could think of developing your skills to become an iconographer. :)

That's what I thought too. It's a hard to draw a little omophorion.

I agree. It was just a little joke, nothing serious.

"I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die [...] These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." -The Lord Jesus Christ

There are already two deacons in the icon or are those angels? They have the same clothes as you see in icons of St. Stephen the Protomartyr.

I believe a deacon (or even deaconess, at one time) could distribute Communion. However, even though the Theotokos gave birth to Our Lord, there's no evidence she was ordained a deacon. The person with the Communion spoon looks exactly like they make the Theotokos look in other icons, as far as the way she's dressed, so I assume it's her.

I thought the Nobel Prize was supposedly non-political.  Sort of like an Olympic medal for brains. Supposedly.
