Embracing the Icon of Love

Since its mysterious origin in Crete, its hidden journey to Europe, and its enshrinement in the Church of St. Alphonsus Liguori in Rome, the icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Help has become a beloved focus of devotion for millions of people.

In Embracing the Icon of Love Br. Daniel Korn, iconologist for the Redemptorist order, relates the intriguing history of this famous icon. He then takes you on an awe-inspiring journey to “read” the powerful messages within the art, deepening your understanding of the incarnation, death, and resurrection of Christ. Through full-color images, guided meditations on key elements of the icon, questions, and space for personal reflection, this book reveals the full significance of the icon and will stir or deepen devotion to Our Mother of Perpetual Help.
