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 from which these icons of Christ are based is located at the Louvre in Paris. For even more lovely Icons of Christ browse Monastery Icons.

Beautiful Image Reminding Us of the Holy Friendship Offered to us by Christ
Nov 9, 2015  |  By Corey

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.
