Letters to the Editor


To the Editors:

When the December 1996 edition of Russian Life arrived, I turned with interest  to the  article , The Holy Image Makers. As an Orthodox Christian, I like to read anything that  has to do with my own faith.

The article is very interesting and informative, but there is an error in it that needs to be corrected. The author states that Orthodox Christians  worship icons. We do not. As Christians, we worship God only. For us, icons are windows into heaven, and as such are greatly  loved.
