Bishop Sionius on Andrey Yanev – 2007



The benevolent and divine influence of Mount Athos shines through the centuries-long life of the Church. Inspiration has brought the hearts and minds of many Christians before God in witness of Silent Light. And just as Christ stood by them then thus we stand today with affection as would anyone whose spirit gazes at the paintings of our brother Andrey Yanev, beloved of the Lord.

Praise to God’s grace and the painter who was moved by the intransient light of Mount Athos and recreated it – eternal beauty beyond silence.

May the Lord be with You:

Bishop Sionius
