Our Lady the Teacher Icon Card (CA5181)
Bible Verse: Deuteronomy 11:18a, 19a
You shall put these words of mine in your heart and soul... Teach them to your children, talking about them when you are at home and when you are away...
This original icon, written by Rev. Jack Shrum, presents an image of Mary as mother and teacher. She is pictured seated at table instructing her son in the Scriptures, handing on the faith of their ancestors, a symbol for what happens each day in the Church at the celebration of the Eucharist. Rev. Jack Shrum, a native of Billings, Montana, has lived in the Seattle area since 1988. He studied theology for seven years at Mount Angel Seminary, where he also had the opportunity to study iconography under Br. Claude Lane, O.S.B.
