The family shrine in the corner...

Homes in Catholic Bavaria still sometimes have a big cross in the corner of the common room.
As a boy I can still remember when my grandfather instructed me that every statue of Our Lady has a title. This one in the photo is that of Our Lady of Grace. And the Our Lady of Grace statue is the one used for Legion of Mary meetings, too.
It's nice to have a corner shrine in the Catholic nest - the statue is a blessed object. And instruct the kids put fresh flowers from the garden in front of it each Sunday morning during the summer months.
