Blessing of Christ the Pantocrator of Roath


As parish priest Fr Irvin Hamer looks on, the ex-Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, takes to the streets of Cardiff to bless a mosaic of Christ Pantocrator.

Aidan Hart Icons made the icon which was installed onto the exterior wall of St Martin’s Church in Roath last March. At the end of a beautiful High Mass, the mosaic was dedicated and named ‘Christ the Pantocrator of Roath’ in a solemn rite of blessing.
