"With the Icon of the Savior we witness the Godliness embodied in Him, while we recognize in the Icon the Prototype, the Divine-Human person of God."

 

"Through the Holy Icons one can see established a relationship blessed by the Divine Grace between the Icon itself and the Prototype"

 

"Every Icon bears a name, the very name of the Prototype and, as we venerate it, the honor rendered to the image goes to the Prototype"

  

"Those who venerate an Icon venerate the person represented in it, [...] who is transfigurated in God's Kingdom"
