He who places his hope on thee, O Virgin all-glorious, will prosper in all he does.

Blessings From Prosaic Materials

I've been given recently a rather ordinary-looking magnetic icon of St. George. We've all seen them. It's small enough to fit into a shirt pocket. What makes this one different, however, is that it's been blessed by the relics of SS Herman of Alaska, Tikhon of Moscow, and Alexis of Zosima.

Happy Dormition!
