    Very nice indeed. Took me a bit of digging, but the title is a bit of homage to your Pennsylvania Dutch roots?

  • Fr Longenecker

    Indeed. "just for nice."

  • Old Bob

    Really beautiful. Thanks, Father!

  • Trent

    Wow, love the East! I chanted morning prayer with a Byzantine priest once – very powerful prayer. Where can I learn more about this icon, Father?Thanks!

    I've always been intrigued by Vasnetsov's work. He seemed to mast the human eye in a way that his paintings at times seem to be peering into you.

  • Arimathean

    It is a fresco from St. Volodymyr's Cathedral, Kiev. I have not been able to find more detail than just "Russian monks and bishops", which is pretty obvious.
