Praying with Icons

October 29, 2018 | Retreats

Since the earliest years of Christianity, icons have been an integral part of the devotional life of Christians in the Orthodox east. They are more than decorative works of art; they have been described as “doorways to the soul” as well as “theology in lines and colour”. What is it that icons can teach us about our faith and how can we use them to enrich our prayer life? After an introduction to the rich and symbolic language of icons we will look at a number of famous icons as well as a few that are less well known. We will also spend some time looking at icons of Our Lady.
