Photopost: House Chapels, Oratories and Prayer Corners

Our photopost of readers’ home altars, oratories, etc., has a really good variety to it, including some Byzantine prayer corners, a chapel with a large collection of devotional statues, and another with a Tenebrae hearse. As always, we are very grateful to everybody who shared these with us, continuing the good work of evangelizing through beauty!

The reader made this Tenebrae hearse when pandemic restrictions made it impossible to go to the ceremony in church.
