Altar of Repose

This year I had a traditional altar of repose set up in my parish, the Cathedral of St. Paul. A local carpenter constructed the backdrop and shelf assembly that was erected in front of our statue of the Blessed Mother, and a very talented parishioner did all of the decorations. The outcome was, in my humble opinion, rather impressive!

Besides the beautiful fresh flower garlands, there are the Eucharistic symbols of wheat and grapes included as well. A fitting way to honor our Lord’s Real Presence! And also edifying for those who prayed before it.

    Beautiful! It reminds me of a garden, as it should.
    There was a breathtaking altar of repose at Our Lady, Help of Christians filled with candlelight, gold and white, and flanked by many types of flowers. I was so happy to see so many local parishes making a great effort for this devotion.
