The True Image of Victory

On the Sunday of Orthodoxy, we remember the Triumph of Orthodoxy over Iconoclasm. 

 Many of us like to celebrate this event by parading around the church holding our icons. We imagine we’ve won a great victory for truth over lies. 

But, how, exactly was this victory won? Does it look like other victories? Is is the same sort of victory that the Emperors won in battle?

 As we dig into this celebration, we may be surprised by our discovery, and how we’re supposed to walk the Way in light of this “triumph.”
