About our icons
"The Holy icons in the tradition of the Orthodox Church have a very deep symbolic, Christocentric, ecclesiological and an elevating content.They express the truth that God became man that we might become gods by grace. For this reason, they are a great treasure towards the path of the salvation of the faithful, while their view calms and soothes the soul. Their educational value is immense. It is well known, that a picture is worth a thousand words and was and always will be, the “school for the illiterate.” They allude to the imitation of the life of Christ, the Theotokos and the saints; while theologically speaking, they are showered by the light of the resurrection of Christ.The Orthodox icons do not contain the physical depiction of persons, but the glory of paradise; the “good transformation” granted through the grace of the Lord, the saints, their transfiguration according to God, which is the purpose and the holy spiritual essence of life for all men."
