Comments

LJ

If, to prevent idolatry and the danger of pagan images, God prohibited the Israelites from creating His image, yet "when He became visible in Christ through the Incarnation it became legitimate to reproduce the face of Christ. ... Holy images teach us to see God in the face of Christ, ... of the saints and of all human beings".

St. Germanus makes the case very well and there are indeed iconoclasts today. I remember being raised in that kind of home, and it was specifically taught.
