Description

Icon with Archangel Michael on Naturally Aged Wood

A serigraph with Major General Michael or Archangel Michael. The faithful and devoted to God Archangel Michael is the defender of the poor and weak people. He protects them from the evil and the hateful devil’s hatred. In countless cases, this protection has been manifested by miraculous events.

Primarily, however, as our Church teaches, he protects the souls of the people who are eager to the Lord, from the attacks of the demons and their efforts to prevent souls in their course to God. Archangel Michael is the one who appeared to Abraham at Isaac’s sacrifice. Then to Lot when he redeemed him with his family from the Sodom disaster. He appeared to Jacob when he was saved by his brother Esau who wanted to murder him.

Blessed Wood that Came Out of Paradise

That piece of naturally aged wood used to be part of a door leaf at a cell at Mount Athos. When the cell was renovated because it has suffered many damages through years monks kept the pieces of that old wood to use them as a base at the icons they create. Renovation works were necessary so the cell could  remain in good condition and monks can continue to live there. Every part of this cell is connected with the monks who lived there and carries within blessings and prayers from many years ago. At Mount Athos there are dozens of cells and some of them are located there for centuries. The old wood has been carefully cut and preserved by monks with excellent techniques on processing wood.
