Pantocrator – Almighty – all Powerful

Christ is portraited seated with His right hand blessing and a closed Gospel Book in His left hand. Christ is portrayed as the ruler of the Universe. The title and image of Christ as “Pantocrator” is derived from one of the many names of the Old Testament for God; for example, Lord of Hosts and El Shaddai.

Christ is the righteous judge and lover of mankind – his blessing proclaims God’s loving kindness to mankind and his forgiveness to us. The Gospel Book represents the “Law” he gives us to live by and by which we will be judged. While he is a compassionate God he is an exacting God.

IC XC the first Greek letters for Jesus Christ. Often add to these letters is NIKA – meaning Jesus Christ Conquers.

“Save us Oh Son of God Risen from the Dead.”

TRADITIONAL WEDDING GIFT specially among Slavic peoples. The tradition on “who” wo gives the icon set varies. Some sources relate that the icon of Christ is given to the groom by his parents and the icon of the Theotokos is given by the bride’s parents to her. Regardless who gives the matched set to the newly “crowned” (the term used for a wedding in the Eastern Churches) couple as they begin thr “new” Christian kingdom of family.

Traditionally the icons are taken to the church to be blessed and remained 40 days before the wedding. In the wedding ceremony the bride and groom may hold their respective icon during the “Dance or Isaiah”” or they may receive them with the exhortation from the priest on the duties of the a husband and wife using the examples of Abraham and Sarah.

In old Russia the wedding icons became the central icons of their “icon corner” (domestic church) as they start their new family. The ico corner was an Eastern corner – easily visible to which the family or visitor would bow to acknowledge the presence of Christ and his Mother and Saints.
