OCN is honored to receive thousands of letters from people around the world who want to share their thoughts with us. We do our best to respond to as many as possible, and we are thankful to each person who writes. On rare occasions, we receive letters that we feel called to share with a wider readership. In such cases, with permission from the writer, we publish the letters here on our website. We ask your kindness and respect for the writers, and for their courage in speaking out.
We have the best fan base on Social Media! They are so excited about living their Orthodox faith, they send us their photos to share with the rest of the world.
For Orthodox faithful, prayer corners are a sacred place, set aside in homes, where icons, vigil lamps, censers, and sanctified items like water, relics, flowers and oils are kept.
Here are a few examples:
- “Hi! My name is Bogdan. I’m from Romania and this is my prayer corner!”
- This is a prayer corner shared with us. Thank you Barsoum!
- This is Juan Carlos’ prayer corner in Argentina. God Bless!
- A beautiful prayer corner from Krasi in Bulgaria.
- Thank you for sharing with us, Anita from Croatia!
