Glory to Jesus Christ!

I was wondering if anyone had any additional information on the attached Icon? I found it on a prayer card, and would be interested in knowing a bit more about it, with the final goal of getting one as a gift. From what I see, it is St. John of the Cross and St. Teresa of Jesus approaching Our Lord and the Holy Theotokos, but the image is too compressed for me to see what else is written on it. Because I feel it would have to be a custom written Icon, if anyone knows of a high resolution image, that too would be sincerely appreciated.


Thank you so much for your time and assistance.

In Christ,

Christ is in our midst!!

fewchosen1985,

Welcome to the forum. May I suggest you contact Carmelite religious who may know where you may obtain what you are asking. There are Carmelite monasteries and religious houses that you can find by a Google search. That may be the quickest way to find what you are looking for.

I took a second look at your attachment and wonder if you could not print out a copy yourself. I was able to enlarge it and have a printer capability that would do it. You may obtain picture quality paper at Staples. I have that kind of paper to print pictures, though it is smaller.

Hello Bob,

Thank you for your reply! Thank you for the suggestion - I am going to contact the Maltese Carmelites (as the Saint's names are in Maltese on the Icon). Unfortunately, the Fathers at the Carmelite Monastery I was previously at were not familiar.

Thank you also for your second suggestion. I shall bring the card to staples and see if they can blow up the image and print it on better paper, so an Icon can be written.

My searches also lead me to find this wonderful Maltese Carmelite Icon of St. Elias - I would love to share it with everyone here.

fewchosen1985,

If you obtain a print--say 8 1/2 X 11, may I suggest you mount it yourself and have it blessed as the icon you want. There is a discussion of doing just that in another section on this forum. I used to mount icon prints by going to a furniture maker and buying their end pieces of solid oak. I usually could find pieces of 1 X 12 oak that could be sanded, stained, and be ready for print mounting. I used a decoupage material to finish the project. I made sets of Christ the Pantocrator and the Theotokos and gave them away as gifts. You might consider this.

Bob
