"YOUR PRIVILEGE"

“A time for prayer is necessary in each person’s life.  The right conditions, atmosphere and special attention at the time of prayer makes the prayer time more personal and gratifying, especially when one kneels in front of a statue, pictures, or a Crucifix.

Having a Prie-Dieu in the home is a constant reminder of the importance of kneeling in prayer, and also that more time with God is beneficial to the mind, body and Soul.

A small altar promotes more desire to pray, and emphasizes the importance of piety, solemnity, and Oneness with God at this time.

A practice of dropping to one’s knees often while at home would certainly help one to find more peace, tranquillity and Spiritual growth.

Kneeling at a small altar will make hardships or needs lighter because of the pure love one feels in honoring God and going to Him as a child.

Also, thanksgiving prayers have a special feeling and meaning to the one who takes the time to say them.

A Prie-Dieu and altar in the home can never replace visits to The Blessed Sacrament, but it has advantages with its very presence.”
