The Ministry of Iconography

The Divine Iconographer is the Holy Spirit. Nothing can be accomplished without the grace of the Holy Spirit. By coming into deeper communion with God through prayer and practice, the prayerful art form of the icon can cultivate spiritual awareness calling us to become one in God’s truth. The icon reveals the truth of the grace of the Holy Spirit coming to all Christians and affecting all of salvation. St. Athanasius exclaimed, “God became man, so that man might become God”. In other words, life is a calling to become perfect. The desire to become perfect is a holy task. The icon is a holy gift which in its artistic perfection is not only a reflection of celestial glory, but a concrete example of matter restored to its original harmony and beauty in the grace of the Holy Spirit.
