Dear Forum Members,
Glory be to Jesus Christ!
I was on ebay the other day looking for icons and found a Ukrainian Orthodox seller who had not just icons available for purchase, but other things as well-one of these was a red velvet bag, I'd say about 6" x 4", with an Orthodox 3-bar cross on the front, and the words, "Svyatiye Dari"-in Slavonic- (I hope I am "translating" correctly!) He was selling it as an "Orthodox Velvet Bag for Sacred Gifts".
What in the world would it be used for?-prosphora, relics, ?-I've never seen anything like this before.
(It is no longer for sale, otherwise I would have attached a link).
