Glance of Heaven


Virgin of Vladimir copyright J.Nelander

We are flesh and blood not angels.  We need to see, and touch and feel in-order to experience and learn.  The writers of Icons recognize that we need a bit of Heaven in the  here and now.

St. James Pray For Me gives some insight and a bit of history and tradition.

Morning – A Time for Prayer

Psalm 143: 8-11

In the morning let me know your love
For I put my trust in you.
Make me know the way I should walk;
To you I lift up my soul.

Rescue me, Lord, from my enemies;
I have fled to you for refuge.
Teach me to do your will
For you, O Lord, are my God.
Let your good spirit guide me
In ways that are level and smooth.

For you name’s sake, Lord, save my like;
In your justice save my soul from distress.

Signs of the Times

The Great Leap Forward -Get ready!  Soon the posters will hit the billboards. Best seen in an exhibition and not along American highways or in our schools.

The Anchoress worries about mandatory volunteerism.  Our “Good Sister”

should worry.

Wishing Financial Stability

Glenn Reynolds, the InstaPundit says, “Heckuva job, Timmy.”

He’s a Go-To-Guy, our Tim Geithner.  A quick trip to his promised site and his promised transparency will yield you one thing…..Nada!  He promises the same for U.S.A.What are the chances???   …..Empty promises or wishful thinking?


This site is coming soon.
