Theology and Spirituality of Icons

Icons are one of the most distinctive features of Orthodoxy Christianity. Icons are described as a “theology in colour,”
a “window to the infinite,” an “image of the Kingdom.” From the earliest times Christians sought to complement the spoken
and written proclamation of the Gospel by means of images. For this purpose they initially adopted certain forms of Greco-Roman art, which soon evolved into a distinctive sacred art governed by its own rules, traditions and theology. Icons are an integral aspect of Orthodox personal prayer and the Orthodox liturgy.

This fall in Montreal a course will be offered as part of the Orthodox theology programme offered by the Montreal Instititute
of Orthodox Theology and the Université Laval (previously under the Université de Sherbrooke). There are no prerequisites and it is not necessary to intend to follow the entire certificate programme to take the course. The instruction will be in English.

Friday April 3rd 6:30 pm – Mystery of Holy Unction.

The sacrament of Holy Unction provides both physical and spiritual healing through the Grace of the the Holy Spirit. The holy oil carries God’s Grace both to renew the body and cleanse the spirit and the mystery is based upon the Apostolic tradition mentioned in the New Testament. The service is composed of psalms, hymns of supplication, prayers to the saints, seven readings from the Gospels preceded by seven New Testament writings and followed by a prayer on behalf
of the penitent. At the end of the service, the holy oil is applied to the forehead, eyes, ears, nostrils, lips, chest and hands
of parishioners.
