I pray for all bishops
This is by far one of Lentz’s tamer works

They appear to be painted on poor quality unprepared wood
IMO it makes them more fascinating. Don't particularly like the religious subjects but I like the style.

When someone asks me why the Orthodox need Bishop's blessing for painting icons - I can always show them Fiodorowicz's daubings...

What is Borys Fiodorowicz thinking? Was the Theotokos human? Of course She was, but icons are designed to edify, and there is no didactic function from showing Her walking a dog. We're lucky that his "icons", while strange, are not offensive.

By Giotto di Bondone. Saint Francis is getting stigmata.

that is pure blasphemy I was raised Augustian Lutheran
very traditional and we respect and honor the holy THEOTOKOS
the mother of god
To paint a icon with Mary the mother of god
having a bullseye target on her is just plain
disgusting and disrespectful

this does not surprise me their is a Episcopalian monastery
on rte 9 between Ossining and Kingston ny that sells so called
icons most Of them are like these or have a Native American theme
or have Jesus the Virgin Mary and other saints deceptEd as African American
basically blasphemy icons the Episcopalian and anglicans are out there

Yeah this is what happens when a community like the episcopalians reject tradition and practices; it leads to a corruption of what is given to them as they have rejected beauty itself.

That is from the Roman Catholic devotion to the Divine Mercy.

They stand for blood and water, which gushed from Christ’s side at His crucifixion.

More here:


I am not saying it’s a good devotion. The above is just for purposes of explanation.
