A Prayer

This photo was taken by my friend, Michael Robinson, while he was visiting Russia on his honeymoon last year. This is the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Theotokos in the Kremlin. The calligraphy (a nice word, derived from the Greek for ‘beautiful writing’, although I don’t know if I can go that far!) was done by me last Sunday before Vespers of the Triumph of Orthodoxy. We celebrated at our Cathedral of the Assumption of the Theotokos here in Denver — it was a beautiful pan-Orthodox service, we had fifteen priests and three deacons, Fr. Apostolos Hill presiding. The inside of Denver’s cathedral is a huge dome covered with hundreds of icons, a perfect place for the occasion!
