The Peace Icon is a sacred painting made at the Monastery of St John in the Desert, near Jerusalem, and given to the Pax Christi movement in 1999. Its panels represent scenes of reconciliation and figures associated with peace. Each aspect leads to meditation on the deep movements of the heart necessary for peace and reconciliation.


The Peace Icon will be travelling to churches in Westminster, Brentwood and Southwark to offer a focus for prayer and reflection during the 100 Days of Peace.
