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.

Looks like Antonis.
Just grab them by prayer.


Mor has spoken through George... this is the faith of the fathers!

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.

When I open this topic, my Antivirus warns me against a site called "3saints", maybe you should know.
"Behold, the mystical sacrifice, fully accomplished, is ushered in. In fervent faith let us draw near, that we may become sharers in everlasting life. Alleluia."

Please pray for myself, my family and my friends.

Probably one of the post pictures comes from that site.

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."
