Triptych Pocket Oratory

Created by Piccolo Di Luce



These pocket oratories are made to enhance people’s prayer lives. They are made of linen on the inside and wool felt on the outside.


The pocket oratory was made popular in the 1800’s as a type of traveling altar. It was used much as they are today, by workers and travelers who may not be close to a Church when they’d like to pray.

There is significance of the position of each item. I worked closely with iconographer David Clayton, who has given me the following information: As Christ on the Cross is the center of our Faith, so the crucifix is the center of the oratory. To the right should be a picture of Christ glorified or the Holy Face of Jesus. To the left should be an image of Our Lady. These three images are the heart of every pocket oratory.

These handmade triptych pocket oratories all have icons as well as either the sacred or immaculate heart plus a prayer. Most of them also have a crucifix.

Measures approximately 3×5 inches when closed.
