The Ladder of Divine Ascent


Archimandrite Georgios of Gregorios Monastery

Modern man is subjected to all sorts of images from a vast number of television networks, from the media, computers and printed matter. However, all these images not only fail to reveal the unique Icon, but actually are caricatures of it and, therefore, they conceal the Icon. We are in fact, facing another form of Iconoclasm. Fortunately, the Holy Orthodox Icons reveal to us the true Icon of God the Father, the Lord Jesus Christ and that of man who was created to the image of God.
