Father Nicholas delivers a sermon on the gospel reading by Luke (13:10-17) where Jesus heals a woman who was crippled for 18 years. Christ addresses the woman, using the Word of Love and creates a miracle.
Words can also have destructive power, as embodied in this gospel reading by the ruler of the synagogue.
An icon is a window into eternity, and so is the word of God. One word opens up eternity. The word of God is God Himself and it is Love.
