Saint Juliana...






While we were visiting The Monastery of the Transfiguration in Ellwood City this past weekend, we were able to see a beautiful icon of Saint Juliana of Lazarev in the church.  I had never seen it before, and thought that some of you would like to see it!

I had hoped to buy a print of the icon while at the monastery, but there were only two very small ones in stock (the details on this icon are such that a larger icon would be optimal).  One of the nuns directed me to Uncut Mountain Supply where it can be purchased in several different sizes though, so after Christmas I plan on ordering a copy.  I am sorry for the terrible quality of the photos.  They were taken with my mobile phone in dim light while holding a squirmy toddler!

Oh joy!! I've been looking to purchase a copy of this EXACT icon for over a year now : ) We were able to see it at the monastery last summer although they didn't have any copies of it yet in their bookstore. Thank you so much for sharing the link to Uncut Mountain Supply.

Love,
kathi
