Catholic Home Altar

I wanted to share with you our new home altar.  It took me a few months to find a secretary desk through craigslist that we all liked and was in our budget.  But we finally found one a couple of months ago.  We placed our altar in our formal living room which is the room we pray.  

My Tîa Rosi brought us the picture of Our Lady of Guadalupe and candle from Guadalajara, Mexico.

One of the reasons I wanted a secretary desk is because it is high enough so little toddler hands cannot reach any statues or candle but low enough so they can see everything that is on the altar.  Plus there is enough room to store books or religious articles.  

Our dear friend Fr. Andrew who was here this past week blessed our new home altar.

So you see, you do not need much to make a home altar.  A home altar is a wonderful reminder not only for us adults but our children to see that God is everywhere, especially in our home.  A reminder to pray.  

¡Hasta luego!
