In the verses for the sake of money is not poetry. In the art for the sake of money does not happen inspiration. In the journey for the sake of money is not spirituality. The temple, built without faith, the Holy Spirit is not descend. And no matter what you doing, you must have faith, inspiration and selflessness». This recording made in the preface of the book of the famous traveller and the priest Fedor Konyukhov «the Ocean is my home». It the phrase can explain the meaning of the project «the Sea collection», what implemented in the framework of the program «Orthodox expedition».

 

«I do not pretend to missionary work, said in one of his interview with Fedor Konyukhov. – I do not have the right of someone to teach... And missionary work should be first of all by  self example, and then people will follow you...». It means: what if you doing of all by faith, with inspiration and unselfishly is already, a sermon. About the reward of't think of it, because it is a wealth the knowledge of the joy of life in God - will be yours.

Of course, these icons were creating for years. And this is not a figment of someone's imagination, but the result of the real expeditions and travels. For example, preparing to release a memorable sign «Cape horn» - how the embodiment of the most dangerous places in the ocean for mariners.

Therefore, for mariners it sign when the Saint Nicholas the Wonderworker, standing on the island, the sailboat is holding in one hand , and Cape horn - in the other hand. After all, many people know that the assistance of the Holy saints, the people were receiving by the time of their journey, is not a fiction but the reality. And this applies not only for sea voyages. For example, when the man going to the mountains, he takes these the icons of Saint also.
