AH, another nationalistic icon type.

Here's one better:

St. George slaying the Russian eagle.

this makes my blood boil.

Christ is risen from the dead,
Trampling down death by death,
And upon those in the tombs
Bestowing life!- Paschal troparion

Of greater offense is the fact the Holy Spirit has been enveloped by the Ukrainian Tryzub. Make of that what you will.

Who? Where? Did we enter into communion with that?!

EP did.
THAT is not the answer I wanted to hear  :'(

This really is in one of the KP or UAOC churches?

Quote from: Michael, Pope of Rome
We should fortify ourselves with the truths of the Faith. Our main focus should be to become saints. Unfortunately some spend much of their time in either trying to sort things out or what is worse, trying to convince the world that they are right. If we all aim at sanctifying ourselves, God will intervene and He will straighten things out. We cannot do it without Him.

Supposedly a KP cathedral. I'm having to take the word on that thirdhand, though.
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

THE OPINIONS HERE MAY NOT REFLECT THE ACTUAL OR PERCEIVED ORTHODOX CHURCH

Take a breath, read Ecclesiastes 1:9.

Oh, sorry.  I meant that you entered into communion with that.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

If you're a real Christian, you hate idols and The Simpsons!
