Orthodox Tidbits — Holy Chinese Martyrs

Holy Chinese Martyrs The following explanation of the icon, "The Holy Chinese Martyrs & The Boxer Rebellion", is taken from the St. John The Baptist, Russian Orthodox Church in Canberra, Australia written by Robert A. Arakak.

The Orthodox Church believes that the icon is a window into heaven. In other words the icon makes visible the very real but invisible reality of Christ and the saints. The Orthodox Church also believes that the icon is the word of God in visual form.
