Icon Light

I got this icon over Christmas and New Years holidays when
I was at the monastery.
My lampada, at my old apartment,
was lit in front of a paper copy
of this icon.
When I got the icon of Rublev's Trinity,
the lampada became the light for the icon of the Holy Trinity.
Finally, this past weekend, I had time to put up my small shelf
and now have a light by St. John of Kronstadt again.
When ever I enter this room, I am deeply encouraged to see
the bright light by St. John.
Glory to God!

I just love that photo. I also have an icon of St. John K.

elizabeth said...

thanks very much Deb! It means a lot to me that you like this photo!

Very lovely that we both have icons of St. John of Kronstadt. The Lord is wonderful in His Saints!
