Every aspect of human civilization has it’s own language and the church is no exception. Ancient sacred symbols have alway held a special significance that speaks of divine glory. They are an eblem that surpasses words and in many instances replaces them when holy concepts are inexpressable.
The sole purpose of symbols in the church is to invite worship. They are a language in and of themselves and their association with the church is one that is based on inspiring familarity. In a sense one could interpret the symbols of the church as a spiritual logo of sorts. What distinquishes them from other forms of symbolism is their holy signification defining the chuch as a forum that allows the worshipper to form a union with the Supreme Being. Symbols of the church reinforce this mystical domicle as a place of devotion to God and all that nourishes the soul as well as, restores the spirit.
