This lovely little gift book about approaching and praying with icons everyday has over 60 full color images of Sr. Faith’s icons, each paired with a scripture and an inspirational word. Experience how these beautiful icons help us live a good life, what they have to offer, what they did for Sr. Faith, and what they can do for you.
Icons are an invitation to go beyond our world; to take a moment to look as through a window into heaven. The space they create gives us a wonderful and open access to reach out toward God and know him deeply in a new way. They are meant to enrich our spiritual lives. They were created to touch and form us and have an ability to soothe and confront where necessary. They provide a place to gather our wandering attention and direct it toward God.
“Sister Faith Riccio has crafted a book of beauty — both images of icons as well as texts from scripture and other writers to echo the holy faces that encounter us in the icons, of Christ, his mother, and their friends and ours, the saints. A wonderful book for personal meditation, a retreat or even in the classroom, a work of true beauty.”
