In the life of not only righteous Christians, but also of ordinary people there are moments when there is a desire or even a need for prayer. Our Orthodox online store Andcross https://andcross.eu
offers all faithful Christians to buy silver icons with gilding. A silver icon with gilding is not only a prayerful image, but also a work of art and a lasting memory. This icon will become an asset and a family heirloom that will be passed down from generation to generation. After all, they do not lose their appeal and do not deteriorate even after many years, and even become more valuable. But this does not mean that one should think of them only as a material value. No matter whether the holy image is portrayed on a wooden board or framed in a silver case, all icons without exception absorb the thoughts and bright feelings of the person praying.
Do you want to give your loved ones a gift that they will remember for a lifetime and never part with? Do you want it to convey your pure thoughts, sincerity, and kindness? Then give this man a silver icon with gilding, and you not only make him happy with a beautiful work of art, but also express in this way all your feelings without unnecessary words. Such a present will never be forgotten, because the silver icon with gilt will protect and guide this person in difficult moments of life.
Today, as many centuries ago, long before the sacrament of infant baptism, people order a personal icon, on which there is a picture of the saint by whose name the baby is named. A silver icon with gilt will be a great gift for such an occasion. After all, when the baby grows up, this image will serve as a reminder of his roots and faith. For parents, in such a case, it would be appropriate to give a written image of “Unearned Joy,” symbolizing paternal and maternal happiness. A silver icon with gilding will also be a good gift, for example, for a wedding.
There is some invisible strong bond between a person and an icon. It is even known such a concept as “house image”. These are personal icons people take with them on their long journeys, and do not part with it until the end of life. According to historical chronicles, Peter I also had a “house” icon of Our Lady of Kazan, with which he did not part until his last days. Today every believing family should have an icon of our Savior Jesus Christ, the Mother of God and the Saints whose names the family members bear. Silver icons with gilding in this case will not only decorate your home iconostasis, but also become a family spiritual relic.
Today, more and more people want to have an icon of the saint in whose honor they are named, and it is best that such an icon be of silver with gilding, which can be taken with them on a long journey, without fear that it will be scratched or crumpled. Fortunately today, every believer can buy a silver icon with gilding in specialized stores, one of which is the Orthodox online store “Andcross”. https://andcross.eu
