I once read somewhere that there was this very pious staretz (esteemed older monk) who was very respected for his advice, etc. A man who always thought of himself as being very religious came to visit him. This man tried to have all the appropriate Orthodox accoutrement's in his home - canonical, golden icons; elaborate candle sticks; incense burners, etc.
The elderly monk invited him in to his abode where the man saw little old table against the wall. On the wall was a wrinkled and soot darkened paper icon, on the table was a tin cup which served as an incense burner and another filled with sand for his candles.
It doesn't matter how fancy or proper the items are....it's what you do with them....and how you do it....with a clean, pure heart with earnestness and humility.
