An Icon is a prayer in line and form;
a hymn of praise in color and harmony.
An icon is a work of beauty inspired by God;
an offering of the soul,
painted to adorn the Church.
An icon illustrates the words of the Gospel;
faithful to apostolic teachings,
following the traditions of the Church.
An icon speaks to the heart and soul of the faithful;
a window into Heaven,
lifting us up to Christ and the Saints.
An Icon belongs to the liturgical worship of the Church,
and brings Heaven to earth.
