St. John of Damascus on the Holy Icons

This event has completed

Join us as we study our Holy Father John of Damascus’ fierce and powerful defense of the importance of Holy Images, that we may approach the anniversary of the restoration of icons to the churches after the iconoclast heresy with renewed faith in their power to ingrain the truth in our souls.
