On the first Sunday of Great Lent, Orthodox Christians celebrate the return of icons to the Churches. Fr. Stephen looks at the spirit of icon smashing that occasionally infects Christians and various political movements and contrasts it with the spirit of authentic Christianity.
"For a Catholic, there is no other online resource I have heard of or seen or used that unfolds and explains the beauty and the depth of the Orthodox faith so extensively as AFR. So many of my misconceptions are being laid to rest, and there are so many other things I have begun to discover and appreciate about the holy Orthodox faith. Thanks, AFR, and God bless for all the effort."
