THE VIRGIN MARY AND WORSHIP

Luke 1:39-45  Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb........why is this the mother of the Lord should come to me?
(Elizabeth - Mother of John the baptist)

Luke 1: 46-55  from here on all nations shall call me blessed....

Luke 1:26:38  blessed art thiu among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb....
(Saint Gabriel - The archangel of God0

The ancient church has kept the Virgin Mary in 'revernace' NOT worship. 

The mother of us all the bride of Christ ...'The Church' has no other choice but to reverence the bearer of our savior.

Thank you.

We are happy to have you as a visitor to our website; please be at home here. 

It is our endeavor that this website provide solid Christian fellowship and hospitality to all people.
 
Our home page:

In our effort to afford our guests who may be unfamiliar with orthodox Christianity the benefit of the richness, holiness and beauty of entering into an orthodox church we placed various Icons on this home page as well as various Psalm, Gospel and relevant scripture readings. For Orthodoxy Icons and Holy Scripture are one and the same like a picture is to a story and is a central part of the orthodox experience as has been for most of the 2000 year history of the church.

'Icons' a  brief review:
As indicated the Icon is for the benefit of worship as is common in the Orthodox Church and as such are not simple decoration. Like in most homes which display photos of important family members that have paved the way for the family. These family members are precious to us and are always in our thoughts and thus edify the center most area of our our lives which is our living spaces with their image for ourselves and to share with all others who enter in.  likewise in the Orthodox Church we keep in mind the faith of those who truly loved the lord. The sight those who paved the way of the true faith is precious to us even in death and is revealing of Gods love.   

Psalm 116:15 Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his Saints .....          

More importantly the Orthodox Church in the first centuries wrote with iconography to express to various peoples and cultures the universal message of salvation. This was the first method of mass media used to preach the Gospel message in all languages but one word.

The Orthodox Church still continues with this means to keep the believer and non-believer seeing and hearing the Word and by such receiving a blessing.

Matt. 13:16 Blessed are your eyes because they see and your ears for hearing.....

Again; the Church writes Icons which often times 'depict' those who have kept the true faith of God in His Church which holds the true virtue for man in this world.

Icons also 'render' men and situations which are the subject of various biblical narratives which connected human beings with God cooperatively in an eternal grace are also in the church. These actions of cooperation; indeed perfection between men and God formed our holy scripture and faith is thus for all believers worthy of remembrance and veneration (NOT worship) since we are to be just as cooperative with God and thus perfect in all our manners to reach that aim as the scripture instructs. 
We receive as believers a blessing from those who indeed were perfect in action and deed whose prayers were just as perfect, full and contrite.  Even thought they or no longer in this world they are the Saints of God and we are happy to keep the beauty of their lives not only on the church walls but more importantly in our hearts. 

Pslam 145:10-12  and your saints shall bless you. They shall speak of the glory of your kingdom and talk of your power to make known to men His mighty acts.

Thank you.....

HOLY ICONS IN THE ETHIOPIAN TRADITION
Holy Icons were the first media used for teaching a  world that was largely illiterate at the dawn of the Church on earth.  Icons are still used to channel the eye to holiness and worship of God in the Orthodox Church today.

Icons are 'written' and not 'painted' and are to 'read' and not to simply be looked upon.  It is an error to consider an Icon a picture.

The Icon of Christ is "written" to express to the "reader" that He alone is the head of Hus Church.

Ephesians 4:15 even as Christ is head of the Church......

John 10:30 I and my Father are one.....

Acts 8:37 I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.......(Ethiopian eunuch)

Matt. 16:16 You are Christ the Son of the living God..........
(Saint Peter - The Apostle)


There are many Icons written of Christ our Lord to explain to us the greatness of His word. But He alone is the true ineffable icon of God ....Amen.
