Significance of the Triangle
When you visit the Casa de Dom Inácio (and also throughout this website) it becomes apparent that the symbol of the triangle is of significance. As illustrated in the above image, the sides of the triangle represent Faith, Love and Charity.

There are three wooden prayer triangles mounted on the Casa walls, one in the assembly hall over the stage, and two more on exterior walls. You may tuck written prayers or petitions for healing into the bottom of the assembly hall triangle, or you may leave them in the box at the Secretaria’s window (they are collected twice daily and given to the Entity for his blessings).

Except during the program, you may place your forehead in the triangle on the stage for silent prayer / petitions / blessings.
