Internationally acclaimed iconographer Joseph Malham takes you through an eight-day, self-guided contemplative retreat to create your own icon of the Christ Pantocrator (Ruler of All). For 1500 years, icons have helped Christians meditate and pray. Used in homes and public worship, these symbolic images represent the presence of Christ and the saints. Malham has been practicing and teaching iconography for twenty years, encouraging ordinary people to create their own icons and be transformed by the spiritual practice. In Drawing Closer to Christ, he invites people of all levels of artistic talent to the contemplative experience of creating a sacred image. Using the ancient icon Christ Pantocrator as your pattern, you will learn how to enter into the process of tracing the icon into the wood, applying gold leafing to the halo around Christ's head, and blending the paint to create beautiful colours that radiate holiness. Malham provides a list of supplies needed for each stage and step-by-step directions with detailed photographs. The first seven days of the retreat follow the rhythm of the Genesis account of creation. On the eight day, you'll learn that while the finished icon represents the personality of the artist, it is still Christ.

"Come to Me" -- Matt 11:28 Jesus told us, "Come to Me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." His promise of rest begins with a gentle request - to come to Him. But where do we find him? How do we draw closer to Jesus? What does it mean for our lives? And what do we really find when we go to Him? Susan Conroy, author and well-known host of the popular EWTN television series Coming to Christ - the inspiration for this book -- will show how you can find Jesus in your life every day. Coming to Christ is a lot like sitting down with a good friend who, in words and pictures, shares her practical, uncomplicated examples of ways we can turn and return to God. Through personal stories, writings of the saints, and sacred scripture, Susan shows each of us not only why, but HOW, step by step, to come to Christ. Let us each take to heart Christ's invitation to "come to Me" and experience the rest we so desire.
