Diaconal Oraria

The diaconal orarion is the distinctive garment of the Deacon and Sub-deacon. The word comes from the Latin “orare” which means to pray. It is long strip of fabric, worn over the left shoulder, with one end at the front and the other at the back. When he prays, the Deacon holds the front part with his right hand. During the Lord’s Prayer, the Deacon wraps both ends of the orarion on his back so that he can move easily during the Holy Communion that follows. The orarion symbolizes the wings of angels.

"...Well, after I had sent my first message earlier today, I returned home and found a very large parcel left at my doorstep! So the icon arrived, and in perfect shape... there may have been some delay due to U.S. Customs, as the documents pouch seems to have been inspected. The icon is wonderfully beautiful - I had not expected such a fine piece for such a small price. It is indeed a work of art, and a worthy tribute to the Holy New-Martyr Angelis! Thank you again for your concern and help. I am very glad that the package arrived, and I am sorry if it caused you any trouble. Thank you again, for excellent service and for this beautiful icon! ..."
