Don't some icons of St. Symeon the God-Receiver have him depicted with a phylactery?

None that I've seen, either in a "portrait" icon or in icons of the Meeting of the Lord. I've only ever seen him bare-headed.

He's thinking of the icons of the Entry of the Theotokos, where St. Zacharias does appear to have a phylactery or some sort of box on his head.


This version looks different.

Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

Too bad I don't have the hat.
You sound like a professional who knows what he's talking about.  That's because you are.

The hat does not make the man, but rather the man makes the hat.

"The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny--it is the light that guides your way." - Heraclitus

When I open this topic, my Antivirus warns me against a site called "3saints", maybe you should know.
"Now therefore, when thou didst pray, and Sara thy daughter in law, I did bring the remembrance of your prayers before the Holy One: and when thou didst bury the dead, I was with thee likewise." (Righteous Tobit 12:12)

But it had not been in Tess's power - nor is it in anybody's power - to feel the whole truth of golden opinions while it is possible to profit by them. She - and how many more - might have ironically said to God with Saint Augustine, "Thou hast counselled a better course than thou hast permitted."

The first thing I thought about when I saw this was a Donald hat... what penance should be done for this? :(

My son, you will place a woman's nylon stocking over your head and face.  At the entrance of the church, you will make a prostration to every woman that enters, whether her head is covered or not, and greet each with "May our most pure and holy Lady Theotokos bless you and save me!"  May God give you strength.

I tried to do this tonight. However, after only three women had entered the parish, three burly men came out and forced me off the property. I'm not sure if they were inspired by demons, or this is part of the divinely-appointed penance (exile!?), or what, but I feel at peace now within my thrice-penitent soul.

My son, after thrice-humiliating yourself, you were presented with an icon of our First Parents being banished from Paradise!  With Christ, we may all experience divinity and eternity within the Liturgy.  May we all enter the Kingdom with humility.  Glory to God for all things.
