To: Salvation
Lk 8:4-15
# Douay-Rheims Vulgate
4 And when a very great multitude was gathered together and hastened out of the cities, unto him, he spoke by a similitude. cum autem turba plurima conveniret et de civitatibus properarent ad eum dixit per similitudinem
5 The sower went out to sow his seed. And as he sowed, some fell by the way side. And it was trodden down: and the fowls of the air devoured it. exiit qui seminat seminare semen suum et dum seminat aliud cecidit secus viam et conculcatum est et volucres caeli comederunt illud
6 And other some fell upon a rock. And as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it had no moisture. et aliud cecidit supra petram et natum aruit quia non habebat humorem
7 And other some fell among thorns. And the thorns growing up with it, choked it. et aliud cecidit inter spinas et simul exortae spinae suffocaverunt illud
8 And other some fell upon good ground and, being sprung up, yielded fruit a hundredfold. Saying these things, he cried out: He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. et aliud cecidit in terram bonam et ortum fecit fructum centuplum haec dicens clamabat qui habet aures audiendi audiat
9 And his disciples asked him what this parable might be. interrogabant autem eum discipuli eius quae esset haec parabola
10 To whom he said: To you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God; but to the rest in parables, that seeing they may not see and hearing may not understand. quibus ipse dixit vobis datum est nosse mysterium regni Dei ceteris autem in parabolis ut videntes non videant et audientes non intellegant
11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. est autem haec parabola semen est verbum Dei
12 And they by the way side are they that hear: then the devil cometh and taketh the word out of their heart, lest believing they should be saved. qui autem secus viam sunt qui audiunt deinde venit diabolus et tollit verbum de corde eorum ne credentes salvi fiant
13 Now they upon the rock are they who when they hear receive the word with joy: and these have no roots: for they believe for a while and in time of temptation they fall away. nam qui supra petram qui cum audierint cum gaudio suscipiunt verbum et hii radices non habent qui ad tempus credunt et in tempore temptationis recedunt
14 And that which fell among thorns are they who have heard and, going their way, are choked with the cares and riches and pleasures of this life and yield no fruit. quod autem in spinis cecidit hii sunt qui audierunt et a sollicitudinibus et divitiis et voluptatibus vitae euntes suffocantur et non referunt fructum
15 But that on the good ground are they who in a good and perfect heart, hearing the word, keep it and bring forth fruit in patience. quod autem in bonam terram hii sunt qui in corde bono et optimo audientes verbum retinent et fructum adferunt in patientia

Sophia, Wisdom of God

Circa 1850

About This Icon: A large and important Ural School icon of a complex subject. Sophia, an aspect of Christ before the Creation, is depicted as a winged angelic figure with flame red face seated upon a throne at center. Above her is Christ in a mandorla flanked by two angels. Higher still are the Heavens filled with stars and angels. At center is Lord Sabaoth-God the Father with a dove-the Holy Spirit upon his chest. To the left of Sophia is the Mother of God, robed as a queen, winged and with Christ Immanuel upon her chest. To her left, is the Apostle John. To the right of Sophia, is John the Forerunner, also winged and with crown. Behind him, is John Chrysostum. The left border with Anthony of the Caves, Kiril, and Nephunt. On the right border are Feuclosiy, the Venerable John, and John the Much Suffering Mnogostradalnviy. This icon is probably from a small chapel.
