PRE-ORDER: All Pocket Prayer Corner purchases made between now and Sunday, September 1, will be shipped out Monday September 2.
Here is the first in our Pocket Prayer Corner series (see below to find out why we did a name change). Each tin comes with a beautiful icon card of Jesus, the Theotokos and John the Baptist created by iconographer Elina Pelikan. The lid of the tin contains the Trisagion prayer printed on durable vinyl. In addition, you will receive an olive wood cross from the birthplace of Christ! This is perfect for children, students, the elderly, military personnel and the newly illumined. This tin is light, portable and water resistant.
*Icon card is also available individually and comes with the Trisagion prayer printed on the back.
(Water resistant: The tin is pretty much water proof, but I say “water resistant” because I don’t want anyone to test to see how “waterproof” it is! If the Pocket Prayer Corner comes in contact with liquid or just about anything wet or sticky, the prayer and icon card and container will survive. Clean spills or sticky finger prints with a damp cloth and please pat dry the tin or it will eventually rust.)
Name Change: When we first launched our tin with the 13 saint cards and info sheets, we called it our Pocket Prayer Corner kit. One lovely woman made a comment suggesting that if it’s a prayer corner there should probably be an icon of Jesus somewhere. We agreed. We went forward with and filled the initial pre-order, but have since changed the name of the kit to SaintsBox Series 1. We had a new dilema. We still wanted to make a proper Pocket Prayer Corner available. I contacted our iconographer and she graciously agreed to make us an icon card featuring Jesus, the Theotokos and John the Baptist, just like each Orthodox church has on it’s iconostasis. This Pocket Prayer Corner is the first in a series. Don’t worry, we will will keep you posted as we expand our options!
