St John Chrysostom, egg tempera on wooden board, 2015. Painted with God's help on Tuesday, January 20, 2015. Special characteristics: The Saint is not watching us but the Holy Altar. His eyes are red reflecting fire. He is not smiling but ecstatically facing the awesome sacrifice. He is seeing something that we can not see. To the right of him is the Holy Chalice, and to the left is the Paten (Diskos) bearing the LAMB. Divine Communion is the Fire that burns.
