It's not that bad, cheap, and strong but a bit too sweet to my taste.

Isn't communion wine supposed to be sweet?

OTOH I remember a Catholic priest saying the opposite, but it might have been his own preference (since he alone partakes of the chalice). Or maybe he just meant it should have no added sugar.

All I know is that it is all Kosher and fortified from what I have seen. Manny for every man!

Is this an acceptable wine for the Eucharist?  It's certainly the most common in my experience.

You wouldn't want a fine bracelet lovingly crafted by a friend?  Wink I already have a prototype photoshopped using some of your favorites!  Cool

Oooo, goody! Can I have a look? Pretty-please?  laugh

Well, okay... but it totally ruins the surprise:

Yup, I'd say that takes the gold medal for Orthoschlock.

I won't disagree. There couldn't possibly be anything out there worse than this, could there? Could there??  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

I'd say be careful what you ask for, but it really seems like you want to know. May God have mercy on your soul.

From the Schlock Icons thread:

Nothing wrong with the icons themselves, but trust the Serbs to put them on liquor bottles, often with a prayer to the saint on the reverse: Shocked Shocked





Just in case some folks think the bottle is intended for holy water, here's the packaging:



And some copper-clad versions:




I suppose having the prayer on hand after getting ironed out on slivovits makes a bit of sense ...  Tongue




Those are awesome. I wish I had at least one. Full. With shot glass ready.

An icon of Christ topped with "In the name of Christ the Savior" as a wine label?  Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

IIRC that's communion wine - we used that brand in church some years back.

That's not meant to be an excuse for the icons on their label...

As long as you soak the labels off, dry them, and decoupage them to little boards to hang in your icon corner (or wall, or room, or backyard cathedral) you're fine.

It is an image of an actual product.  In and of itself it cannot offend.  More offensive would be those Orthodox Christians who buy such things and support the person who makes it.

No...the image is offensive in that there is no other use for the product being depicted other than sticking it on your private parts.

If I posted an image of a private part....would that not be offensive because it's just an image of it, and not really it?

No, this is an article of clothing.  With an icon of it.  There shouldn't be an icon on any underwear or daily clothing.  Or beer/liquor bottles.  Pick a non-liturgical product and an icon should probably not be there.  Posting a picture of genitals, OTOH, are against the rules.  Context would be important, e.g. a still from a porn film versus a picture from an anatomy and physiology textbook.

This is 100 percent curated from the Internet by searching phrases like "cool Greek Orthodox gear" and "unique Orthodox presents." I promise that if I have posted it here, it can be purchased.

I actually ran across some more thongs today with "IC XC NIKA" on them. I can really only pray it's someone intending to blaspheme, because otherwise  Orthodox people are even more accidentally iconoclastic than I originally believed.

For when you can't be a monk but want to play like you've got a cassock in the kitchen, the Death to the World apron.


LOL!

THAT IS SO RIDICULOUS

We just need an Orthodoxy or Death fanny pack

LOL.

Thank you for changing your mind.

That image is totally unacceptable...and I'm amazed some of you are actually joking about it, instead of finding it offensive.

smh

Maybe we joke about it BECAUSE we find it offensive.

No...the image is offensive in that there is no other use for the product being depicted other than sticking it on your private parts.


No other use? Really? Not even as fuel for the fire in which to burn whoever thought it up?

I actually ran across some more thongs today with "IC XC NIKA" on them. I can really only pray it's someone intending to blaspheme, because otherwise  Orthodox people are even more accidentally iconoclastic than I originally believed.


Young 'un buys icon underwear online. Kewl!

Mother (or father) finds these garments in the laundry basket ....
