“The Holy Martyrs of Libya” written by Nikola Saric, a Serbian living in in Germany. The modern icon depicts the beheading of 21 Christians in Libya at the hands of ISIS.
This image gives too much emphasis to the black clad emissaries of Satan. We should spread the glory of the Holy Martyrs but not give much mention to or depiction of their killers. Holy New martyrs pray to God for us!
That seems to me to be a valid point.
