St. John Damascene

“Show me the icons that you venerate, that I may be able to understand your faith."

“The saints must be honored as friends of Christ and children and heirs of God…observe the manner of life of all the apostles, martyrs, ascetics and just men who announced the coming of the Lord…and emulate their faith, charity, hope, zeal, life, patience under suffering, and perseverance unto death, so that we may also share their crowns of glory.”
