About the Event

A new online program that, following the liturgical calendar, revisits the key moments of Jesus' ministry by joining together biblical interpretation of selected biblical texts with the icons that are central to the Eastern Catholic and Orthodox tradition. The presenter for the program will be Sr. Leonora Wilson, FSP (Iconography), and Fr. Flavio Gillio, M.S. (Biblical Interpretation).

Participants will have the opportunity to:

  1. Revisit and deepen some of the major events related to the story of Jesus of Nazareth by blending biblical interpretation of selected texts from the Gospels with the rich and ancient tradition of the icons, whose roots date back to the first centuries of the Christian era;
  2. Learn how to interpret some of the most famous icons within the Eastern Christian Tradition (motifs, gestures, and colors common to these profound symbols of faith) in dialogue with Scripture, early Christian writings, and Liturgy
  3. Learn how to approach and pray with the icons,
  4. Learn to appreciate the spirituality that is celebrated and expressed through this ancient art form.
