About Icons - (Mint)

The home of the icon is in the Christian Orthodox Church, also called the Eastern Church, which is richly decorated with icons. It plays an important role in the worship service as well as in the everyday life of orthodox Christians. In orthodox homes icons are reverently placed in the "beautiful corner", which is the corner facing the east. Lights are turned on and prayers are offered. Many believers belonging to other churches have adopted icons as their own devotional objects and the interest in icons is steadily growing.
