Treasured at the Orthodox Monastery of the Transfiguration, Ellwood City.
dope icon. got blessed by syro-malabar priest. As Eastern Catholic I love my Eastern Orthodox brothers in Christ peace to you all
I'm very happy with this icon, it's well made and overall very beautiful! I love the contrast of colors between the blue vestments and the gold/yellow background.
I first saw this icon in our Church, very large, hanging on the back wall just past the altar. My first few visits to Church, I don't know how, but I didn't notice it (it didn't help that I sat on the side rather than the middle of the Church). The first day I got up the courage to make my way up to the icons to bow and kiss them, on my way over to the Theotokos icon I stopped in the middle to bow (as I saw others do) and there my eyes met this huge wonderful icon of Christ the High Priest. I stood silent and couldn't move...only for a second, but it seemed much longer. Ever since, I now sit in the isle seat, in full view of that awesome icon. And this is why I purchased it!
