Windows into Heaven


I've seen a lot of different identifying signs in tourist buses--but never an icon! 
This bus was parked down by our local monastery today, waiting for its group of Russian pilgrims to return from their visit to some holy places associated with John the Baptist.

In Christian tradition, an icon is not meant to be looked at as a work of art; it is to be gazed upon as a "window into heaven."
So here you have a photo of a window in a window now on a computer screen

Looks like they have converted their tourist bus into a pilgrim bus. Good job! Rev
