This 17th century icon comes from the Hilander monastery on Mount Athos. It features four prominent warrior saints, from left to right, Demetrios the Myrrh-streaming (also spelled Demetrius/Dmitri), George the Trophy-bearer, Prokopios (or Procopius), and Artemios (or Artemius/Artemy).
All four of these saints were soldiers and martyrs. Their powerful intercessions are especially felt for soldiers, police and public servants, as well as everyone who struggles against fleshly passions.
Remember Our Servant Warriors

This icon reminds me of my husband's service and the choice my son may make to serve as a police officer. I also remember to have gratitude for all the suffering servants who died for their faith. The detail on this icon is not as sharp as I would like, but it is still beautiful to behold.
