Krishti u ngjall!
I presume many of us have seen either photos or video of deacons (usually two in number) carrying "little churches" on their shoulder (sometimes with handles) or holding them up in their left hand while censing, recalling the icons of deacons like Romanos, Stephen, Laurence, &c. If you have not, here are some examples:
Does anybody happen to know, either from text, or perhaps just experience, what the general direction is for using these--and I believe they are called "Sions"--during worship. I know that in Moscow they are kept on the altar table, approximately where some might place the Dikiri and Trikiri. Since they are currently being used in various places, it seems that rubrics must exist somewhere regarding their use. They are certainly very interesting. Thanks.
