You could devote a whole journal volume to the Madonna-Whore elements in play there.
On an extended hiatus from this site. Please pray for me and my family.

I'm sorry to any that my posts might offend.

Mor Ephrem is a nice guy.  Just say sorry and it will all be ok. Say I had things that were inside troubling me but I didn't know how to express appropriately. I will not behave that way again but I am seeking help.

thank you so much Mor ephrem you are a hero!

Who seriously thinks it is morally acceptable to wear pictures of the Virgin Mary like that?

"Oh wow, this makes me look sexy"
"Вознеслся еси во славе, Христе Боже наш, радость сотворивый учеником, обетованием Свтаго Духа, извещенным им бывшим благословением, яко Ты еси Сын Божий, Избавитель мира."

May God one day unite me with the Holy Orthodox Catholic Church. And may God forgive me for my consistent sins of the flesh and any blasphemous and carnal desire, as well as forgive me whenever I act prideful, against the desire of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, to be a Temple of the Holy Spirit.

All lesbian anachronisms aside, I really like the Book of Kells-esque “Not Made by Hands” in the center. Would totally get that as a stand alone icon.

i... dont.. understand... this...

Orthodox_Slav, the person who painted this has painted several "icons" which have a pro-homosexual message. This one shows Sts Perpetua and Felicity as lesbian lovers. Similarly, he has claimed Sts Sergius and Bacchus were homosexual, and painted them to reflect this.

It's frankly awful how modern society can't understand male friendships and twists everything to be sexual
The message of this universal temptation that attacks men today - quite openly in its secular forms, but usually more hidden in its religious forms - is: Live for the present, enjoy yourself, relax, be comfortable. - Seraphim Rose

 “How long, Archpriest, are we to suffer thus?” I answered: “Until our very death, Markovna!” And she replied, with a sigh: “So be it, Petrovich, let us plod on.” - Life of Avvakum by Himself

The gesture, rather than the word, is the true transmitter of traditions.

I wonder why they used such a weird frame, though.
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

Anyhow when God was asked he said Eastern Orthodox is true Church and not Catholic Church. So come home and enjoy.

It's probably done that way to replicate a piece of an ancient fresco.

I've seen it before in differently shaped pieces of wood.  Some like this:

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.
