Christ be glorified in his icon of the sun.

We're nearing total eclipse here in central Oregon.

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

Has the parousia occurred yet?

Can't see it here, thus far. Cloudy.
