The Need for Catholic Decor and a Link-up!

Years ago there was an old tradition of hanging a Crucifix in every room of your home. Sadly, today that tradition has died out for many Catholics. The reason for keeping a crucifix in each room was to remind us that God is always watching and is always with us. It was also a reminder of the wonderful deed Jesus did for us, and that our personal sacrifices are never in vain. So I often try to decorate my home with Catholic items like crucifixes, statues, and pictures. This helps to give my family and I a constant reminder of what is right and what is wrong, of what is a good action and what is a bad action. They are also a reminder that we should always put God first, and that we should always think of God throughout the day and pray to Him for every need. ...Read more about Catholics and statues here.
The Link-up:
I'm creating a Link-up for all Catholic bloggers to share their ideas on how they decorate their Catholic homes during various seasons. These post should be about home altars, Catholic themed wreaths and crafts that you have made to decorate your home, or any other ideas you had to make your home more of a domestic church! 

If this Link-up is successful, I would like to host a new "Catholic Decor" link-up each season or month. For example: Lent, Spring, Month of Mary, Summer Gardens, Fall, Advent, etc..... If I get a good turnout for this first link-up I plan to have a link-up after Easter next month for decor that is centered around "Spring and Mary's Month of May"!
But for now please add your posts for the Catholic decor in your home during "Lent, Easter, or other Everyday Catholic Decor Ideas".

The Rules:
Only faith-centered decor ideas
No items for sale
Add, please add this button to your blog/post so other can come and join in too!
I'm looking forward to seeing all your awesome ideas!
 God Bless!
