    Hi Thomas, The proper way for an ikon to be blessed in the Russian Orthodox Church is to have it behind the altar for 40 days. Or a Priest blesses it. Nilus

      Dear members

      Does anyone know if the Syriac Orthodox Church has any practice of
      "blessing" a personal icon? How about other Oriental Orthodox?

      I have heard that the Eastern Orthodox have such a practice...could someone
      briefly describe it for me?

      In our Lord's Love
      Thomas Daniel
