Build Your Icon Corner
Many Orthodox homes have an icon corner or shelf in their home that is the focal point for the family’s devotion and a constant reminder that Christ should be first in our lives. The icon corner should be located where it will be very visible and accessible, not placed in a room which is rarely used during the day or unseen by visitors. It is preferable to place it on an East wall and near the front door of the home.
An icon of the Theotokos with the Christ-child is placed on the left (as you face the wall), an icon of Christ blessing* on the right, and across in the center. The icons of saints after whom family members are named are included, as well as icons of special significance, and heirloom icons. A vigil lamp or candle illuminates the icon corner, which is also the appropriate place to keep a bottle of Holy Water, a Bible, prayer books, and a censer.
