Description

This 7th century Coptic icon eloquently presents Christ in a unique light: not as king, teacher, or even the beloved, but as our friend. Holding the book of the Gospels, Jesus rests His arm on the shoulder of Saint Mina, a Coptic ascetic and martyr of the third century, with the Savior's words in the ornamental border below. The original icon is at the Louvre in Paris.<

Beautiful Image Reminding Us of the Holy Friendship Offered to us by Christ

I fell in love with this image ever since first seeing it on the cover of Benedicta Ward's "Sayings of the Desert Fathers." I purchased from Monastery Icons the version reproduced on a ceramic tile, with stand. The image, which I display in my meditation area at home, is a wonderful reminder of the holy friendship that Jesus offers us, if we are willing to dedicate the time and attention to its cultivation. The piece is high-quality and very beautiful.
