According to Orthodox Christianity, icons depicting Jesus, Mary, biblical events, and the saints are passageways for the worshipper to enter the holy presence of God’s Kingdom.

This example of a simple Christian-based altar includes icons of Mary and Jesus with flowers and a candle, set on a table covered by cloth.

Jesus represents Divine Love and the higher realms of Spirit. Mary represents Divine Mercy, which is compassionate, loving, and comforting. Together, Jesus and Mary represent the balance of Divine Fatherhood and Divine Motherhood in God.

The candle expresses the light of Spirit, and the flowers bring the fragrance, color, and beauty of this world as an offering to the same divine Spirit from whence they came.
