Sorry, I'm an idiot.
Why would you say that? Don't be so tough with yourself...

Because the source of where I took the picture from said Spoleto, Italy, and I read the first two letters and thought "Ah, SPAIN!"
Jesus:you are the reincarnation of Elijah you can trust me I'm jesus!

LivenotoneviL: yeah right get behind me satan

Exposed demon: oh no my cover is blown!

May God one day unite me with the Holy Orthodox Catholic Church. And may God forgive me for my consistent sins of the flesh and any blasphemous and carnal desire, as well as forgive me whenever I act prideful, against the desire of Christ.

The Crucifix that I wear is a Celtic Cross. Although I bought a new Russian Cross that I will wear when it arrives because the Celtic Cross is rusting.

I got it pretty quick because it's the name of a delicious pasta fast-food chain.
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

Anyhow when God was asked he said Eastern Orthodox is true Church and not Catholic Church. So come home and enjoy.

Fresco of the Life of Saint Catherine of Alexandria by the same artist
(Bottom left is obviously Theotokos and Child, not sure who the bottom right and center are
- bottom right seems to be Mary Magdalene, and maybe Pope Linus due to the red?)

Despite being pre-schism, I don't know if you could consider them "icons" just from how visually intense they are, despite how pretty they are.

Still found worth posting though.

It's good to know that if a British Orthodox church were to exist this artstyle would be acceptable.

Beautiful. Showing Christ as God and Man at the same time. Realist and mysterious at the same time.
