Sacred objects delivered to your home
Why does the Christian tradition focus so much on the objects that a person has in their home? The answer is simple and complicated at the same time. According to tradition, the most sacred place for every Christian is the place where, as told in the Gospels, Jesus died, was buried, and rose from the dead. That place is in Jerusalem and the descendants of the first Christians built the Temple of the Holy Sepulchre there. The unique character of the place resides in the fact that it is from this exact place on Earth that a person can address God directly; according to Christian tradition God is present and supports his people. Tradition also holds that if an object is blessed in the Temple of Jerusalem and then taken to another place, it carries with it that blessing and holiness that is only present in the Temple of the Holy Sepulchre.
