Don’t know why I’m doing this but here’s my icon wall. I don’t need to describe it as it pretty much speaks for it’s self.
This is a 19th century antique icon I bought from a dealer in Kiev Ukraine. I won it at an online auction.
This is my little incense pot given to me by a woman and friend from the Lebanon. I use it all the time especially on Sunday. In the distance is Peter and Paul a prayer card I bought from the Russian Orthodox church named after them in Dublin. You can also see padre pio right beside Our Lady of Fatima where else would he be? . I have some holy water from the river Jordan and icons of Michael and Raphael but Gabriel is missing. I lost him when moving house one time.
This is our place where we encounter heaven as a family. When people come into my home which is rare because I allow only those closest to me across the threshold or the exceptional laity, they will encounter this wall.
I like to think of it as less than a wall and more of a window. It’s still a bit bare at the minute and I’m planning to fill it more.
Do you have a prayer wall or space and if so has it helped you in your daily struggle to be mindful of God in the home?
