You could devote a whole journal volume to the Madonna-Whore elements in play there.
Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Amen.

to post a picture go to where you post a message then press icon with mona Lisa picture in the frame you will get brackets with img in them then find the picture you wanna post in google images right click it and choose open image in a new tab then copy URL and put between img brackets here's an example

dont put spaces like me im only puting spaces to demonstrate
[img ]http://www.danielbibb.com/images/collection/50030-Lg.jpg [ /img]

now take away the spaces and you shall get this

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.

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
“God,”
The words rumbled:
“There is much suffering,
But the church is alive. "

Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift.
