Christening is the most important sacrament for every Christian. This rite recognized and practiced by absolutely all faiths. And its essence lies in the fact that from this moment a person is under the protection of God. At the time of christening, each newly Christian receives a special name, as well as a guardian angel, who throughout his life will protect him from various temptations and sin.
Spiritual birth necessarily implies the giving of a silver cross. Тhis is a symbol of faith that should remain with a person all his life, from birth to death. That is why many priests recommend buying silver crosses – they are not only beautiful and high-quality, but also incredibly durable.
Marash embroidery – the style of needle-point that developed in Marash (in Cilicia, south-eastern Turkey today). It is a particularly recognizable tradition, although it is by far not the only regional variation of an Armenian art or craft. “Marash work” involves distinct patterns – with names ranging from the mundane (“cup”) to the more mystical (“flower of seven mountains”). They often consist of stitches in blue or red over dark backgrounds, at times stringing in pearls or making use of gold or silver thread for particularly significant items.
