A U.S. museum is set to open a new exhibit which looks into the lives of various saints. The Museum of Russian Icons is in Clinton, Massachusetts.

From the article:
Quote
“We really wanted to pull out some icons that are not used in the museum, and had never even been seen,” [exhibit co-designer Valerie Santos] said. “And we wanted to show the process of how people become saints in the Orthodox Church, and how the tales of their lives tie into that process where they eventually became venerated by the people.”

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
