Serbia in IIlinois


MOST HOLY MOTHER of GOD SERBIAN ORTHODOX MONASTERY in Grayslake, Illinois.
From one of the most beautiful sites on the blogosphere called the Lion and the Cardinal.
They have been running a series on the work of Abbot of Suger which is quite fascinating, no pictures of course.
Have a look and then ponder what this monastic Church and what which Suger created says about worship and prayer and the dignity of man's place in the mystery of Salvation.

Such decoration isn't really about teaching but rather indicates that we, and the liturgy thye Church celebrates are part of the mysteries that are illustrated, and all is part of God revealing Himself.

Father Ray, it's not the Abbot of Suger, but Abbot Suger of St Denys.
