No, this is.



Get thee behind me.



Cool, is that a real icon or just a ''byzantine style'' art?

Depends on whether you venerate it.

Quote from: Seekingtrue
Yes we who are far from sainthood we can recognize a living saint and I'm talking from personal experience.Yes they are gentle soo gentle it can not be described it is like gentleness and humility in one and also they have this light this energy it's beyond words...and when you are near them you feel ecstatic and very happy

"I have a sweet axe, too."
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.

That's cool. I saw a english or scottish cult leader from early XX century that used a very nice ''kohen gadol'' garments, quite similar to that one.

St. Edmund was captured by the pagan Danes and tortured for refusing to denounce Christ. One of the methods of torture was arrows. Thus, why he is portrayed holding arrows.

What does "pigas" mean?

I can't find the meaning anywhere online, even on Google's Greek translation thing.

It's probably his family name. The meaning might be forgotten.
Mencius said, “Instruction makes use of many techniques. When I do not deign to instruct someone, that too is a form of instruction.”
