I know it's Lentz, but ran across this one today.

Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

The Church's bridegroom was never the Byzantine Empire.

Quote from: Fr Alexander Schmemann
The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

A (presumed) Mormon painter — with admittedly good intentions — accidentally downgrades the Holy Trinity to simply angels.

Accidentally?  :P

BTW, can anyone translate the Arabic inscription in the halo of the angel on the left?

I like the title. Makes it sound like Omran's mother/wife is yelling upstairs telling him to get dress cause they have guests.

Also, just because they *look* like the Holy Trinity on a certain other icon, doesn't actually mean they *are* supposed to be the Holy Trinity in this painting.
