Agni Parthene (O Pure Virgin)
Posted by Carolyn Clark on 27th Apr 2015
The first time I heard the Agni Parthene I fell in love with it, and when I read about how St. Nektarios was inspired to write it I wanted an icon of this saint. This particular icon is especially beautiful with the scenes of his life surrounding the main icon. One of the small scenes at the top shows St. Nektarios composing the Agni Parthene.
