Saint of the Day

St. John Damascene (676-749)

John was the last of the Greek Fathers. He vigorously opposed the Iconoclast persecution. He is regarded as the first theological encyclopedist, and as the prince of Greek hymnodists.

Show me the icons that you venerate, that I may be able to understand your faith. St. John Damascene

I found this quote from St. John to be very thought provoking. Show me the icons you venerate! What would people see as they enter our homes - look on our walls, view our bookcases and our media collections....? What message of faith would we give them if they read our lives by virtue of those things that we surround ourselves with?
