 "Icons can move us beyond the spoken or written word into a moment of pure grace

and profound faith. To be drawn to prayer through sacred images is to let the Divine look deeply and compassionately into our lives."  -- Gregory Norbet 

“We have a wonderful treasure, our inheritance from the early Church, the ICON, which is not only an aid to prayer and liturgy, but is visual scripture. If one is going to have art in Churches intended to inspire, why not have good art that has integrity: Icons, which are based on 2000 years of Christian tradition.”
