Eastern churches
Icon of Our Lady of Sitka to tour the lower 48 United States
Хорошо! You can see the icon at the bottom of this page and here: part of Alaska’s Russian heritage. Очень красивая.

Huw Raphael writes:
Reproductions of this icon have, most recently, been blessed and distributed by Metropolitan Herman, in celebration of Pro-Life Sunday. Our Lady intercedes for all who protect the unborn and, indeed, for all who feel driven to murder their children.
Which is great. The OCA are involved in pro-life (at least the anti-abortion and anti-euthanasia parts of it), and it’s a recent phenom in their history, for this reason.
