Prayer Spaces At Home
Creating a dedicated prayer space in the home is a great reminder to everyone in the household that prayer is important. Having a corner, or table filled with spiritual items helps to keep the focus on God. A prayer space is so unique and personal to each family. Some prayer corners are very simple with only a Bible and crucifix. Then, there are more elaborate prayer spaces, adorned with liturgical colors, prayer cards, candles, holy water, statues, and flowers. The Catechism of the Catholic Church describes the family as the “domestic church” where we learn to pray. Having a dedicated prayer space is a visible reality of this connection between church and family. Do you have a prayer corner in your home? How did you decide what is placed on the table? Can you describe for us your special prayer space and what it means to the family? Call in and share. 1-833-288-3986.
