The Icon: Our Teacher

 

The icon is an expression of our faith, for the icon comes from deep within the life and belief of the Church. It is the expression of the faith of the Church as seen on the Scriptures and in the worship of the Church.

You will notice in the description of many of the icons that the roots/inspiration for the icon lies in the teaching of the Scriptures and the life of the Church. The liturgical hymns and texts provide the fuller meaning of a particular icon. The faithful Christian is formed through all these ways:

  • 1. Through the reading of The Holy Scriptures;
  • 2. Through the prayer and worship of the Church;
  • 3. Through Catechesis;
  • 4. Through the teaching of the icon.

 

The icon communicates visually the mystery of God’s coming to us and all he had done for us.
