The Need for Confession
Posted by Gamzehyaavor on 1st Jun 2012
"Salvation Demands Repentance". The Image of this Icon is excellent.
The Sacrament of Confession was and is central to our Salvation. The image of a man in confession is clearly and vividly depicted in this excellent icon.
Here again, the "Battle" in and the Battlefield in which we live is depicted with all the main "players".
Christ is shown on a painting on the Confessional Wall--the priest (In Persona Christi) is seated hearing the man's confession and offering him Sacramental Absolution of and for his sins.
The demon is seen struggling (and failing!) to prevent the contrite man from relaying his sins. The angel is shown erasing the man's sins from the "Book of Life".
A great Icon and image which depicts what Christ adjured us all to do: Repent of our Sins.
The Icon is Super well made with excellent quality wood, colors, hues and details.
I ordered the XL size and for the price of 38 dollars--This is an excellent and very great deal.
