Our friend Ryan Szarko made these icon-printed t-shirts and gave them as gifts to me, for being the sponsor for his chrismation, and also to Krista, Fr. Phillip, and Fr. Dennis for their encouragement along the way. We've really enjoyed getting to know Ryan this past year since he wandered into St. Herman's for the Litya of Palm Sunday Vespers last year. He is a multi-talented, all-around good guy, who, in addition to creating these wearable holy images is finishing his Master's in Speech Pathology, is an accomplished musician, and also teaches aquasize!

Here you can see Krista's shirt picturing St. Seraphim of Sarov during his thousand days of prayer on the rock.




And here's yours truly, wearing the image of St. John the Baptist and Forerunner, which was very fitting since I'm currently reading Bulgakov's book on St. John, Friend of the Bridegroom.

Thanks, Ryan, for these thoughtful gifts.
