Spiritual Quote of the Day (Henri Nouwen, on the Reason for Icons)

“[I]cons … are created for the sole purpose of offering access, through the gate of the visible, to the mystery of the invisible. Icons are painted to lead us into the inner room of prayer and bring us close to the heart of God.” —Dutch Roman Catholic theologian Henri J. M. Nouwen (1932-1996), Behold the Beauty of the Lord: Praying with Icons (1987)
