The Holy Family

Icon of the Holy Family

For believers, marriage and family ties are of great importance, which determines the presence of the Holy Family icon on most of the home iconostases. The image of three significant figures for Christians was not canonized by the Orthodox Church. Nevertheless, people pray in front of this religious item and receive a share of help. It is not counted as one of the images for several reasons:

  • Mary and Joseph were betrothed, but not married. According to Orthodox canons, such a situation is unacceptable;
  • The image shows Jesus as a child. According to Holy Scripture, the man at the time of all the biblical events was at least a hundred years old.

Over time, the image never got canonized, but the icon painting nevertheless acquired a symbolic meaning for believers. It is considered the patroness of family ties and happy marriage. If one does not know what to gift the newlyweds on their wedding day, then the Holy Family icon can become an excellent solution. It can also be purchased for those celebrating their wedding anniversary. In this case, it helps to strengthen family ties. To celebrate the birth of a child, such an item of icon painting is considered a suitable present. It will save the baby from life’s misfortunes.
