More home shrine photos. A Benedictine oblate blog

Home shrine

A new series of home shrine photos has been added to the Oblate Spring website page on how to set up a prayer corner or home altar/shrine. I enjoyed reading the descriptions of each item, such as how they were obtained and their special meanings — just the kind of items for a home shrine/altar.

The heart's shelter is peace of the Holy Spirit. The home should know the heart.


  1. Nicely done.  I've been wanting to create space like that in my house.  I have a room that I've started to gather stuff in but don't really have a table for it yet.  One day!

  2. Bryan -- I am the same way. Have been thinking about what I might do. I liked the advice I read that a home shrine should be personal. And people seem to revise them as time goes by -- that's another theme. That also fits with the notion that a home altar/shrine is always a personal expression -- and that -- with God's grace will change with time.
