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

St. Vukasin of Klepci and Jasenovac

Serbian Orthodox St. Vukašin from Klepci was martyred by the Croatian Roman Catholic regime during World War II at Jasenovac concentration camp. He was glorified in 1998, and his feast day is May 3 (New). May he pray for us.

I am sometimes shocked by how graphic icons can be sometimes. A few days ago I saw one of a Serbian bishop being skinned alive by the Turks.

This goes to show us that the Church thrives because of those who cherish the her more than their own lives.

The graphic quality of some of our icons doesn't resonate too well with the Copts, for example, who value more serenity in their icons.
