Christ and the Children Icon


Christ rebuked the disciples for preventing

the little children from coming to Him.

Tradition states that the curly headed child on His lap

is Ignatius, the future Bishop of Antioch and future martyr.

    They reminded me of an upcoming documentary titled, “Mysteries of the Jesus Prayer.”

    Have you heard of the film? It’s been garnering a lot of attention lately, and I think you may be interested.
