    Uncompromising Defenders of the Orthodox Church

    Posted by Carolyn Clark on 8th Jun 2015

    St. Photios the Great refused to accept the errors of Rome when life would have been much easier for him if he had buckled under the pressure. He also had the courage to refuse communion to the emperor himself when Emperor Basil murdered his predecessor. St. Mark of Ephesus stood up for the truth of the Orthodox Church when political expediency called for submitting to the Pope. St. Gregory Palamas helped the revival of Mt. Athos by supporting the practice of hesychia, contemplation of God through uninterrupted prayer, [the Jesus Prayer]. This Uncut Mountain Supply icon is like three icons in one of three great champions of the Orthodox faith.
