Where can I find good, traditional icons available for purchase in the states? My brother has a strong devotion to St. John (the Beloved Disciple) and was recently told by a priest-friend of ours to pitch the icon he had of him in his prayer corner.
The reason he was told to get rid of it was the icon was from a company called Monastery Icons and according to our friend (the priest) he definitely should not buy or have icons from them in his home. I don’t know all the details or if its even true, but I know that some Russian Orthodox have come out strongly against that group and our friend is a latin-rite priest and he was aware there was something fishy there.
Long story short…we did get rid of the icon but I would really love to find him a good icon of St. John as a gift for his prayer corner. Where can I find good, trustworthy, properly written icons for sale?
Thanks in advance for any help!
