Matthew recently installed an 8 foot diameter Pantocrator icon at St. Nicholas Antiochian Orthodox Church in Beckley WV. The local paper ran a wonderful article about the installation.
As a tithe of Matthew’s time, he also painted a 5 foot diameter Pantocrator for his home parish in Boise ID.
This icon of the Mystical Supper was commissioned for Camp Nazareth.
Troparion – Tone 6
Of Your Mystical Supper, O Son of God,
Accept me today as a communicant.
For I will not speak of Your mysteries to Your enemies,
Neither like Judas will I give You a kiss,
But like the thief will I confess You.
Remember me, O Lord, in Your Kingdom!
Troparion – Tone 4
By Your precious blood,
You have redeemed us from the curse of the law.
By being nailed to the cross and pierced by a spear,
You have poured forth immortality for man.
O our Savior, glory to You!
Kontakion – Tone 8
Come, let us all sing the praises of Him who was crucified for us,
For Mary said when she beheld Him upon the tree:
Though You do endure the cross, You are my Son and my God!
This icon of Christ depicts Him with an open gospel book with the words, “I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” This icon is part of the iconostasis at Holy Transfiguration Antiochian Orthodox Church in Boise ID.
|“Behold, the Bridegroom comes at midnight, And blessed is that servant whom He shall find watching, And again, unworthy is the servant whom He shall find heedless. Beware, therefore, O my soul, do not be weighed down with sleep, Lest you be given up to death, and lest you be shut out of the Kingdom. But rouse yourself crying: Holy, Holy, Holy, art Thou, O our God, Through the Theotokos have mercy on us.”This icon represents Christ after being stripped, beaten with a reed, crowned with a crown of thorns, and dressed in a purple robe of mockery. It is displayed for veneration during the “Bridegroom” services during the first three days of Holy Week.|

In this icon of Christ in Glory, the Creator and Redeemer of the universe is seen in the human features of the Incarnate Son of God. He is seated on the heavenly throne, blessing with his right hand and holding the Gospel Book in his left. An oval mandorla surrounds the Throne, and this overlies an octagonal square — symbol of the future age. Cherubim fill the spaces, and the symbols for the four Evangelists fill the corners. It is based on a 20th-century Russian prototype with roots going back to St. Andrei Rublev.
