Orthodox Church of the Annunciation in Lowell, Massachusetts. Its filled from floor to ceiling entirely with mosaics that took 40 years to finish.

Do not rejoice over me, O my enemy, for though I have fallen, yet will I arise, because even if I should sit in darkness, the Lord will be a light to me.
Micah 7:8

Excuse me. Those icons of Saint Demetrios and Saint George, showing brotherly love, are just too cute.


If you keep silent- keep silent out of love. If you speak-speak out of love. If you warn someone about something-warn them out of love. If you forgive-forgive out of love. …Let the internal root of everything be love, from this root only good can grow. St. Augustine

If you speak-speak out of love.
If you warn someone about something-warn them out of love.
If you forgive-forgive out of love.
…Let the internal root of everything be love, from this root only good can grow.
St. Augustine

Ask for humility

simplyorthodox:

With all your power, ask the Lord for humility and brotherly love, because God freely gives His grace for love towards one’s brother. Do an experiment on yourself: one day ask God for love towards your brother, and another day - live without love. You will see the difference.

- St. Silouan the Athonite, Writings
