The word "icon" has its etymological roots in the Greek word "eikon", which means "face" or "portrait". An icon is like a "threshold": once you go beyond it, your soul enters another dimension, a place where faith is alive and living and communication can start as from person to ... Person.

A genuine theology in images, the icon reveals a world beyond appearances, a world transfigured through the presence of the Holy Spirit. The reflected image leads the soul of the onlooker towards an uncharted territory, where access can be possible only by heightened spiritual care, for the Unseen can become Seen to us all, as forms that are accessible to us, through the icon...

When man stumbles in front of the unexplainable, iconography transforms ideas into images, revealing the fact that the image reflected through the icon is to be "seen with the eyes and understood with the heart"!
