Hieratical Epimanikia

Epimanikia are liturgical vestments of the Eastern Orthodox Church and Eastern Catholic Churches. They are cuffs, one for the right hand and one for the left, worn by the Deacon, the Priest, and the Bishop. Made of thickened fabric, usually brocade, they lace onto the wrists to hold in place the wide sleeves of the Sticharion. A cross is usually embroidered or appliqued to the center of the epimanikia. They symbolize the tying of Christ's hands and wrists at the time He was flogged and serve to remind us that all things that we do with our hands, we should do for the glory of God.

"...Dear OramaWorld, The Chalice Set is here!!!!! It arrived in regular mail after 28 days of travel. The packaging in excellent shape. It is 8:50 PM here and I finally could not wait another minute to open the box. After opening the box and seeing all the small packages so carefully wrapped I decided to wait to open them until tomorrow evening at Vespers . . .but Father Francis gave permission and I did unwrap the Star, the Lance and the Spoon. Glorious! Thank you and your staff for your fine work!..."
