In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.
"I have always considered myself an artist even though my artistic endeavors had been limited to literature and music. However, in the past few years, since my time at Saint John Fisher College, I have been studying at the Katholiek Universiteit Leuven in Leuven, Belgium; and as part of my continuing seminary education, I was fortunate enough to have taken instruction in iconography. I initially thought that this exercise would be rather uninteresting and I didn’t take it seriously, but I have found a true home as an iconographer, and I am thrilled with the enriching practice of the writing of sacred icons."
