The Icon of the Pantocrator
“The LORD looks from heaven; he beholds all the sons of men.” (Psalms 33)
On the dome of Orthodox Churches, The Icon of the Pantocrator, Jesus Christ our God (or the Almighty), looks upon us as we worship every Sunday. This is to serve as a reminder that He is always present and looks upon us at every moment.
Lord Jesus Christ, our God, have mercy on us and save us!
