“Maria Fonseca painting at Parish of Our Senora da Conceição – Pau Dos Irons / RN
I have fallen in love with icons; looking at them is not like appreciating a great painting, there is a spirit to Spirit connection that occurs. Painted in prayer, saturated with the Holy Spirit, a wordless flow of the love, light and most especially and an energizing joy fills my soul as God himself blesses me. I simply open my heart, soul and spirit to the icon. It is powerful and direct; the perfect way to connect with God when I am exhausted. God is in charge as I let go of mental logic and control and allow the Spirit of the Lord Himself to minister to me through the image.

Beautiful. Her work reminds me of some of the Byzantine icons I have seen, only newer. I really appreciate the images you have shared.
