Christmas Home Altar 2010

These are a few pictures of my family's home altar in our new house. Our family's pump organ (around 100 years old) serves as our altar. My great great grandparents bought it for my great aunt and took it by horse and buggy from Grand Rapids to Cadillac (about 120 miles). For a bunch of years it was stored in a garage with paint spilled all over it until my grandpa found it and restored it to its original state. It now has immmense pride of place in our house.

I decided to frame and put up a picture of St. John Cantius on the top of our altar after my incredible visit to the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius this past week.

I stumbled upon your blog. Great job and I hope you discern your calling in life.

I'm charmed by your obvious total commitment to our Church. I pray that your path of discernment will be enlightened and made level by the help and intercession of the saints you love.

I'm a cradle-Catholic approaching the far end of this life, and still find that Our Lord will provide opportunities for service if I only ask.

Lent is going well for me so far. How is your lent? I just got back from Chicago the other day from my second visit with the canons and I found out that I was officially accepted to join them the third week in June!

Please keep me in your prayers!

In Christ,
