How about a set of places from famous events in the Gospels?



Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem


Jesus' baptismal site in the Jordan (a few different theorized locations)


Peter's House in Capernaum


Mount Tabor, traditional site of the Transfiguration


A theorized site of the Transfiguration


Pool of Siloam


The Temple (had events like Jesus walking there at the Feast of Hanukkah and chasing out the moneylenders)


Pool of Bethesda


Path of the Via Dolorosa


Church of the Holy Sepulchre


Mount of Olives
I just returned from the Holy Land.... and saw all but one of these sites.
Truly amazing.

Notre Dame, just before the roof collapsed. The shiny stuff is molten lead raining down into the nave. Mad props to the intrepid soul who stayed behind to take this photo instead of heading to safety.

Kontakion of the pre-feast of Nativity in Arabic:



Today the Virgin comes to the cave
to give birth to the Eternal Word.
Hear the glad tidings and rejoice, O universe!
Glorify with the angels and the shepherds
the Eternal God, who is willing to appear as a little child!

Would he be horrified that someone was using him as their avatar? ???

I honestly hadn't thought of that.  Should I change it?

I mean, I don't think so just based on that. I just think it's an interesting question. Probably many pious people wouldn't like the way they're talked about in a reverent tone after their deaths, but people don't stop talking about the virtuous lives of the saints because of that. I don't know the fellow, or why you have the avatar up... I didn't mean the question to imply that it was a problem though.

Ok, I get what you're saying.  :)

I used his picture because I've listened to a lot of his talks about his life before his conversion along with how it came about and it's very similar to my own story and path in life.  I consider him a role model, but like you said I'm sure as a monk he probably wouldn't be comfortable with that.

I met him twice and I think that yes, he probably wouldn't be comfortable with that but if you are happy with having him as avatar he would anyway let you do. He has quite the attitude of Apostle Paul, risking everything so that others may come closer to Christ.
There's an upcoming documentary of Fr Arseniye. Here is the trailer: https://vimeo.com/365217716

Or like once a Monk talked about St. Silouan: "Either he's in prelest or a saint".
side note: The icon/picture is not placed for veneration in his monastery.

This is a separate theme ) I am inclined to think that people say who have no idea of Holiness.
