You remember I was reading the great book about prayer spaces? And needing to update our prayer table? “The Little Oratory” is a must-have, in my opinion, for any Catholic family’s library. We have been “doing” a prayer table for years, but reading this gave me inspiration to keep the prayer table as a focus in our home, simple ideas (and art prints!) to beautify and decorate the space, and overall a deeper appreciation for family prayer.
Well. I finally have our space prettied up. It only took months and months. I love it. I took advice from the book and used two of the prints, framed them, and hung them on either side of the crucifix. The symmetry is so appealing and soothing, isn’t it? After I finished the embroidery, I added lace and then layered it over blue and gray patterned fabric.
For Advent, we have tea lights on a white plate, and a framed St. Andrew novena prayer. It was a simple update for the season.
What do you think? What have you done for your prayer spaces?
