Let us know through videos or comments in the section below!

For His Glory,

MESSAGE FROM THE ARCHBISHOP

Dearly beloved in Christ,

Since the concerns about the Coronavirus continue to rise, we are taking necessary steps to support our people in their spiritual journey during this crisis. We are monitoring reports from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and have directed the parish Committees to take the precautionary measures for the health and safety of our members and the community.

- Since social distancing has been recommended, in several places, our churches are required to cancel their public services and other activities for the sake of public health. However, we have advised our clergy to have Holy Qurbono wherever possible, but not open to the public. Follow the government directives in this regard.

- People are advised to stay home and be part of the church services through live streaming either from your local church or from our Archdiocese (8:15 AM, Holy Qurbono 9:00-10:15 AM- EST).

- Even though we are unable to meet regularly, do not hesitate to contact your priest who is always ready to provide encouragement, and pastoral care during this time

Dearly beloved, this is a time of frustration and isolation for many of us. But we can convert it into a time of gladness by turning towards our Lord who promised that He would never leave us or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). Spend more time in family prayers and spend more time with your children to share the divine providence during such a crisis.

Let us all pray that our Lord provides healing to all those who are affected by the coronavirus and to protect the medical staff who are caring for them.

May the Grace of God be with us all.

+ Archbishop Titus Yeldho

Icons in our Syriac Orthodox tradition (Did you know?: The icon next to our Patriarch is inspiration for our Chapel’s altar icon).

Note: It must be emphasized that icons are not a liturgical necessity within the Syriac Orthodox tradition. It is perfectly fine to have a church without any icons, and it is absolutely not a problem to pray without the presence of any icons whatsoever. This introductory defense of iconography is against those whom assume or teach that the Syriac Orthodox Church is or was iconoclastic.

The following is a comment raised by one of the followers on this page and a response by the admin team. We hope, this will provide a very brief introduction to the Syriac Iconographic tradition and also clear up some misconceptions which continue to surround the status of iconography in the Syriac Orthodox Church.

Comment: "To my knowledge, Icons are not an important part of theology and liturgy of the Syriac Orthodox Church, because it is evident that the Syriac Orthodox Church does not involve Icons in the Liturgy."

Response:

"Sorry, but your response is coming from an ignorance of the historical iconographic tradition of the Syriac Orthodox Church.

This response is understandable, because of the limited resources available in English and other modern languages, there is much left to learn about the Syriac Orthodox Church, even for her own faithful. Additionally, due to wars, persecution and other historical circumstances, the availability of funds and materials to continue iconography was severely constrained; so most parishes do not continue to have icons today. The revival of the authentic Syriac Orthodox Iconographic tradition is the need of the hour.

The tradition of the Syriac Church with respect to iconography is not an imitation of the Byzantine or other jurisdictions (Coptic, Tewahedo etc) but a uniquely Syrian concept. While discussing icons, there is a natural tendency to compare the Syriac tradition to the Byzantine standard. Though there are many shared aspects, one must be aware of the differences and respect the unique traditions of the Syriac Orthodox Church.

The earliest icon in the Syriac tradition is the "image of Edessa" or better known in Christendom as the Mandylion. We also have references as early as the 4th century in the writings of St. Ephrem the Syrian and other Fathers about the use of paintings and icons in churches and homes. The words 'icon' and 'image' were used in Syriac both interchangeably and also respectively to differentiate the two. From the life of St. Severus the Great, we read that icons were part of his learning of the Christian faith and Orthodox formation.

It is also important to note that there were other challenges faced by the Syriac Orthodox during the early centuries following the Council of Chalcedon, so mounting a defense of iconography was not a pressing matter.

As the Oriental Orthodox communion was not involved in the Byzantine iconoclastic heresy, an elaborate and more systemic theological development of iconography (as seen in the Eastern Orthodox Churches) did not occur in the Syriac Orthodox tradition. However, one of the most detailed defense of iconography in the Syriac Orthodox Church was written in the 8th century by Mor Sergius the Stylite, in his "Disputation against a Jew". Following this, we have defense of iconography in the works of other Syriac fathers including Mor Mushe bar Kifo, the Syriac Orthodox apologist and polemicist extraordinare Mor Dionysius Yac'ub bar Salibi, and then later in the 13th century by Mor Yac'ub bar Shakko.

There is also ample evidence of icons being installed in the churches as observed in historical literature and sadly the same works also mention the destruction of said icons by the non-Orthodox at various points of time. Syriac art and iconography is also prominently found in illuminated lectionary manuscripts, most notably and one of the earliest being the Syriac miniatures in the 'Rabbula Gospel' from the 6th century, which was followed by the 'Syriac Bible of Paris'. While iconography within the interior of parishes waned following progressive persecutions, the use of iconography and Syriac miniatures in manuscripts continued to flourish into even the 19th century.

Reiterating what we mentioned earlier, while the Syriac Orthodox Church does not view icons in the exact same way as other jurisdictions, nonetheless, iconography is part of the Syriac Orthodox liturgical praxis. In the Syriac Orthodox liturgical tradition, there exists a very elaborate service for the consecration of icons which are installed in the churches and said service follows the typical West-Syriac Ordo. Additionally, while it is true that icons are not used during the Divine Liturgy and are not regularly venerated on a weekly basis (however, faithful are free to do so at any time); during Feasts, the liturgical rubrics indicate that the icons are carried in the processions.

It is true that the Syriac Orthodox Church does not venerate icons as extensively as other traditions, but the Syriac Fathers have spoken about veneration which follows the perspective of St. Basil the Great whom wrote, "The honor paid to the image passes to the prototype"

Photo: Patriarch of Antioch and all the East HH Moran Mor Ignatius Aphrem II with the icon of the martyrs of Sayfo the Syriac genocide of 1915. This icon was commissioned by the Patriarchate for the June 15 feast of the martyrs which was added to the Liturgical Calendar in 2015.
