Iconography at its best ...

... or at least, it's the best in my opinion.

We have a dear friend whom we met while in Austria 5 years ago. This young man is from Romania and is an Eastern Rite Catholic. He is also an amazing iconographer -- and we're quite fortunate to have one of his small icons.

He is currently in Rome, working on his 2nd year of a doctorate. While there, he has been living with a community called the "Disciples of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Mary". Because Ionut can never sit idly, he has been painting the community's chapel.

I'll let you enjoy the pictures:
