This line really gets to me...coming from a representative from the monastery....

""The faithful have been calling us crying to ask what happened," monastery spokesman Father Robert Jasiulewicz told the news agency PAP.

"We've reassured them that the painting is intact.""


The PAINTING is intact?  Really?  Is that all it is?  A painting?

Sheesh!

To be fair, it could be a matter of translation. Even in Greek, eikona can simply mean picture or illustration in certain contexts.

It seems to me that rather than worry about what word a news article may or may not have used in connection with this sorry incident, we Orthodox ought to rejoice that this most ancient and venerable of Icons was not damaged. While many of us may have historical, and in some cases, present day grievances regarding both the secular rulers of Poland and some of the religious leaders of Poland's Roman Catholic church (frankly these grievances are shared by many of the Greek Catholics over the centuries as well as the Orthodox), we can not deny the devotion directed by the Polish faithful towards the Blessed Mother and the venerable Icon of Czestochowa. If any devotional practice of our Roman Catholic brothers approaches the Orthodox concept of venerating icons, it can be found at this icon and within the pilgrimages of the faithful to Czestochowa.

No, no....I am also concerned about the man with the paint...and really am curious as to his intentions and reasons behind his action.

I was less worried about the icon because someone had the forethought to actually put glass around it - which was an excellent idea.

My concern over calling an icon a "painting" is not nitpicking or overlooking the "act" of vandalism, but, a concern for showing an icon due respect.  Too often people think of icons as nothing more than paintings, works of art, etc.  That was my only concern.

If this is truly a error in translation I happily stand corrected.  No harm was meant....only concern for respect towards things holy.

How do you know this man is a psychopath, without knowing anything about him, or his motives?

To him it may have seemed logical.  That's why I am interested in his reasoning.  Just because he's made a mistake doesn't mean he's insane....only mislead.

Again...nor harm was intended by me in my comment.

Time out all - isn't it possible to be a criminal or an anarchist without being psychotic? I think that's what Liza meant.... If one truly were deranged he or she would not possess the same moral culpability - surely we don't excuse all criminal or anti-social actions on the basis of psychotic disorder....

It's far from ours. They tend to reproduce that icon without Christ (only Theotokos is seen):



That distorts icon theology, especially when it comes to the Hodegetria type.

SIGH.  Roll Eyes

I used the term "psychopath" in a completely NON-clinical way, to describe the jerk (how's that? police ) who defaced the icon (which Webster's defines as a "flat panel painting" btw) with paint, in an effort to be charitable, because I would hate to just assume that someone would DELIBERATELY set out, with malice aforethought, to basically spit in the Theotokos' face.

OK?  Sad

This isn't the first time this icon was desecrated.   You can clearly see the wounds on the Mother of God's face.  This also brings back the memory of Michelangelo's Pieta being hit with a hammer.

I've seen the Theotokos depicted alone before. I have a small Russian icon of 'The Multiplier of Wheat." I think it was mentioned in this thread. In it, the infant Christ is not there, and the Theotokos is alone, in prayer (apparently). She's hovering over a field. Yes, hovering.

I've seen that one, too.  I know LBK discussed that one somewhere.  I will have to search for it.

However, there's also the Pokrov icon, where she stands alone, spreading her veil of protection over us.
