The Synod of 787, the second to meet at Nicea, refuted the Iconoclast heresy during the reign of Empress Irene and her son Constantine VI.
The Council decreed that the veneration of icons was not idolatry (Exodus 20:4-5), because the honor shown to them is not directed to the wood or paint, but passes to the prototype (the person depicted). It also upheld the possibility of depicting Christ, Who became man and took flesh at His Incarnation. The Father, on the other hand, cannot be represented in His eternal nature, because “no man has seen God at any time” (John 1:18).
This Saturday, Matthew with participate in the Mystery of Reconciliation before Divine Liturgy. Following Divine Liturgy there will be a Potluck for the Mission Community. In honor of Matthew's First Reconciliation, the Somich family will provide several main dishes and a cake. Please stay and share in a community meal and fellowship! Bring a dish to share, or simply bring yourself!

This community is forming with the assistance of Fr. Steven Galuschik, Pastor of All Saints Church in North Fort Myers, Florida.
We are offering weekly Liturgical services in the Byzantine Rite.
The Byzantine Catholic Church is an Eastern Church in union with Rome; Carpatho-Rusyn in background and is an American Eastern Church. Our Liturgy blends the colors of our many icons with congregational chant and our fragrant incense in prayer.
We invite you to come and see who we are and what we are all about as part of the Eastern half of the Universal Church.
