The Pearl of Great Price

"The Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a merchant man seeking goodly pearls: who when he found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it." (Matthew 13:45-46)


In this parable, the pearl symbolizes Christ. The Word of God who speaks to us through Holy Scriptures.  Like the merchant who sought the perfect pearl, we are also compelled to seek the greatest thing that will fulfill our soul's longing, the perfect love, Christ.  Christ's words teach us how we should live in order that He can dwell within us.  His words teach us how to treat one another, to live selflessly, to give up everything for the sake of acquiring the Kingdom of Heaven.  In Scriptures, Christ teaches us how to pray and through prayer comes enlightenment and self-knowledge.


Icons are extensions of prayer, embodments of the Kingdom of God, imagery of the truth path to heaven.  They arouse in us the desire to live our lives in Christ. The Sisters of the Monastery offer you these icons of Christ Himself, His Holy Mother, the Theotokos, His Saints, and the life-giving strength of the Holy Cross as spiritual inspirations toward your journey to acquire Christ, the precious "Pearl of Great Price".


Please know that the price of the items do not include shipping & handling which will be calculated for each item at the end of the auction.
