"Would you prefer a screen separating the nave from the altar which bears only an icon of Christ?"
Ultimately by biggest complaint about the icons in question is when they are given such a prominent position, that they can compete with the Lord for attention. Such is the case of the saint icon outside one of the churches I go to.


This is probably not a proper spirit to display during Lent, so I ask your pardon in advance, but in addition to being nonsense, this misunderstanding of icons and their place in our faith is dangerous to your spiritual health. The inside of St. John the Wonderworker is literally crammed with icons (if I can say it that way) - none of which compete with the Lord for attention.

I beg to differ. The one right outside our church can be replaced by an icon of the Lord, his birth, preaching, crucifixion, or Resurrection. That would be much more Christo-centric and Christian. Yes this is a reason I am absent from that parish.

You bring up Calvin a fair bit. To answer your question, maybe he would agree. Good for him if he did.

Answer: No, because every icon of the Theotokos that I have seen is in fact has her literally pointing or directing us to the Lord.

The one of her Nativity too? Or the Eleusa type? Or the Oranta type?

Quote
but would that be bad?

It would be against the VII Ecumenical Council.

Quote
Answer: Every Festal Icon I have seen includes the Lord at the center. This includes icons of Pentecost; while His person is not seen, His spirit is. The same can be said icons based on parables (Prodigal Son)

What about the icon of the Nativity of the Theotokos, Annunciation, Entrance of the Theotokos to the Temple, Exaltation of the Cross...?

Quote
If John the Wonder-worker was truly as devout as some will tell you, then he himself would hate to see a picture of himself alone for reverence or adoration.

I doubt he was a Calvinist.

In this case I was referring to Christian humility,  not iconoclasm.

Icons cannot be made of those, who are alive.

As I understand it, Iconoclasts are against depictions of Christ.

We decree with full precision and care that, like the figure of the honoured and life-giving cross, the revered and holy images, whether painted or made of mosaic or of other suitable material, are to be exposed in the holy churches of God, on sacred instruments and vestments, on walls and panels, in houses and by public ways, these are the images of our Lord, God and saviour, Jesus Christ, and of our Lady without blemish, the holy God-bearer, and of the revered angels and of any of the saintly holy men.

Prepare to make loud noises during Filioque.

 Huh

I think Alpo was making a little joke. However, this reminds me of a post on byzcath: the poster related how, at a certain EC parish, a small number of LCs (who apparently didn't like the omission of the filioque) regularly attended and would loudly add "and the Son" after everyone had said "who proceeds from the Father". (I think he said that those LCs are traditionalist -- but needless to say, not all of us traditionalists are like that.)

Went there today; kind of a flop. First, I got times confused. I thought it started at 9:30, as it turns out it started at 9:00. During coffee hour I tried to 'talk catechism' with a couple of guys, but they did not seem to know what their church believed.

I should certainly think so. I know it's just as true in LC parishes as in EC parishes.

I would not only be surprised, I would be appalled and stunned if someone did that, or if someone did as PeterJ related about the Latin Catholics in the Byzantine Catholic Church!  Totally disrespectful and reprehensible, imho!  And I have to admit, I'm surprised that you *wouldn't* be surprised  Roll Eyes.  But, that's just me....

Well, I won't try to say whether people should be surprised or not, but I've found the post I mentioned earlier. The thread started with this question:

Quote from: Altar Boy
My question is this....I have noticed that in many of the pew books and prayer books, the filioque is inserted in parenthesis. Could a Traditional minded Western Catholic join the East and be allowed to follow his conscience by reciting the filioque during the Creed?

and one of the replies said:

Quote from: ukrainiancatholic
There are many problems with the Tridentines at my home parish. They have caused much upheavel and distress on the liturgical and social life of the parish.

We welcome all guests to worship with us at Liturgy, however, a malicious intent to cause spiritual havoc by attempting to change parts of our Liturgy, and even liturgical items inside of the church, is most unwelcomed.

Back home, when ever the Creed is chanted in English, the Tridentines in unison shoutout, "and the Son!" Not only is that disrespectful to others in the church praying, but to God because at Liturgy we worship Him; we do not go to force our grievances upon others.

Just my take on the issue. Welcome them to partake in our Liturgy as we do, not to come just as a refugee.

This is absolutely terrible. I would hope that the Byzatine priests could tell these "traditionalists" (I use quotes because reall traditionalists would respect the Apostolic traditions of the Byzantine Churches) that they need to cut it our, or they can simply leave. Can't the priest appeal to the Bishop to deal with these disrespectful latins?

Yeah, some people have weird ideas about what "traditionalists" means. I recall a discussion on a traditional Catholic forum about order of sacraments, in which a small (fortunately) number of posters absolutely insisted that baptism-eucharist-confirmation was the "traditional" order. (Of course, now I'm getting ever further off-topic.)

I can understand that an icon of our Lord would be more of an outreach to the heterodox who might be passing by--you would be saying that we are a Christian church, come and check us out. On the other hand, it seems to me that outreach can be handled in a variety of ways, only one of which is the sort of icon that is displayed outside the church. In my church, we have an icon of the Holy Apostles displayed--very logical as we are the Holy Apostles Orthodox Church. Thus, the icon of our patron saints helps to solidify our recognition by the community. Same perhaps with the Orthodox church on Cherokee Avenue, which claims that "Saint John the Wonderworker Parish is the first church in the world named after Saint John (Maximovitch) of Shanghai and San Francisco....Over the years the parish has been able to gather several items that this beloved saint wore, including a thigh shield and two of his robes. More recently the Church was given a bone relic from his foot, the only part of his body that was not found to be incorrupt." So, in this i9nstane, we have a church that has particularly strong devotion to her patron saint. This is quite normal and has happened many times and many places. I would think that the veneration of Saint John does not detract from the worship due our Lord. I do not think that what the parish intends. However, you may be more comfortable with another local Orthodox Church. I can only vouch for one--St. Mary of Egypt in Norcross; the rector, Father Peter Smith is a wonderful priest.

ADDED: I checked out St John the Wonderworker's web site. While what I saw is merely an impression, it seems to me that this parish is quite serious about her calling. Why, they even highlight of serving the poor and the hungry--folks who look poor and hungry to boot. I take back my recommendation to go visit St Mary of Egypt; stay and grow where you are as I don't think that you realize how blessed you are.
