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.

"...Dear OramaWorld Crew, I simply cannot find words to tell you how much we admire your excellent and very beautiful work. Father Francis is a quiet man yet when he unwrapped your gift (and indeed it is a gift) he expressed emphatically and with much admiration said, “We will keep this in the Church” and whoosh away The Chalice set went to be on the deacon’s table in the Altar area until class! He was more than pleased! With tears of joy I pray God’s Blessing on you during this Great Lent and forever. (Surely, I will return many times to browse oramaworld) Marion..."
