Glory to Jesus Christ everyone, it's been awhile since I've asked a question on the Forum. Wanted to find out what an “Eleton" is in the Byzantine Rite? Is it the equivalent to the corporal cloth used in the Roman Catholic Church, or is it the napkin cloth used for Holy Communion?
Or maybe it's a completely different liturgical item.
