Those who have a lamp- kandilo in the house know what a unique spiritual atmosphere on the eve of holidays and Sundays is created by the trembling flame of the lamp. It is especially engraved in the child's soul, and remains as the most cherished memory from childhood until the end of life. That atmosphere is an inexhaustible inspiration to all artistic and poetic souls, and many great works were created inspired by that trembling and unforgettable light and the play of shadows of the domestic lamp,kandilo.

Every Christian and Orthodox home should have the following features: Holy Scripture, lamp-kandilo, icon, apprentice, candle, basil, letter, incense burner, incense, Prayer Book.

The kandilo lamp is placed in front of the icon. It is lit on the eve, and on the day of every holiday and every Sunday, and it can burn constantly. The lamp is usually lit and maintained by the housewife. Pure sunflower oil burns in the lamp, on the surface of which a special lamp for the lamp is placed. The lamp and the flame on it symbolize the light of the teaching of Christ and the light of the life of the saint before whom the lamp is lit. At the same time, he reminds everyone in the house that they too should live a bright and clean life.

Consecration of the home: When a house or apartment is built, painted, beautified, and when things are arranged, and when the family starts living in it, it is necessary to consecrate the home. This consecration is performed by the competent priest. The consecration is performed in the following way: the competent priest is called, in some parts the godfather is also called. On the table in the most solemn room where the icons are, a table covered with a tablecloth is placed, and on the table - a candle, incense burner, incense, a bowl of water for consecration, basil, a bowl with a little flour, a glass of oil (oil), four small candles at the consecration they are lit and glued to the walls of the apartment and a small stick, wrapped in cotton wool on top, to anoint the walls with consecrated oil.

I always feel peace in my soul when we light incense for a holiday, when we burn incense in our home, and say a prayer.
