nice!

Where's this? And when was this mosaic made?

It's from the Kykkos Monastery in Cyprus.

And this says that the frescoes were made by "the Kepola brothers, Cypriot icon painters, and of others from Greece and Romania." Which appears to mean late-20th century, since the two brothers made icons for a church in 1991-1992 (here).

And here's an interesting excerpt I stumbled across from Adoro te devote, an Eucharistic hymn by Thomas Aquinas:

Quote
Pelican of mercy, Jesus, Lord and God,
Cleanse me, wretched sinner, in Thy Precious Blood:
Blood where one drop for human-kind outpoured
Might from all transgression have the world restored.

I heard that Mor Ephrem is addicted to cocaine. Pass it on.

And the exceeding sassiness of your commentary

when did Leonard Nimoy pose as Jesus?

Even satan himself can appear as an Angel of the Lord, and do good works in His name, to distract you from the path of True Righteousness

Ever notice that just like there is no age limit on stupidity, there is no IQ limit either? kind of explains a lot huh?

I am now trying to imagine Jesus delivering the Sermon on the Mount using the voice of Leonard Nimoy (this voice, specifically). Interesting...  Cool
