This is called Orlec – the eagle. Image of an eagle flying over a city – overseeing it. The Eagle represents the bishop overseeing his diocese – taking care of it by looking at (paying attention to) every detail with an eye of an eagle.

When the Bishop serves liturgy in a parish or comes to visit – we take this little piece of carpet out and he stands on it. This is to remind him and us what the function of the bishop in the church is.

We just bought one from our Monastery bookstore thanks to the Djukanovic family. You can buy one for your parish for $120. Ask your priest, buy it and donate it.
