Orthodox Tidbits 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.
