Mrs Pogle author of 'Life on the Home Front' today writes about and requests to see other peoples 'Home Altars' so I dedicate this post to her.
I live alone in an attic apartment and my 'Home Altar' is the centre piece of my living room situated in front of the chimmely breast. The portable Mass set I purchased with money my parents gave me to commemorate my reception into the Church during Easter last year. I purchased it off e bay and it arrived in a very poor state my father who had opened the parcel at the time as I was away at university painstakingly and carefully restored it for me.
The statue of Our Lady on the right was also a gift I received for my reception into the Church and The photograph to the left resting behind the Mass set is a close up of John Henry Cardinal Newman’s Reliquary at the Birmingham Oratory.
I also have another smaller 'Home Altar' below the window in my living room where I have a framed tapestry of the nativity and keep my bible and prayer books.
