In keeping with the older traditions of the church, we've covered all the crucifixes, statues and religious art with purple drapes that were thrown together at the last minute painstakingly made. The effect is quite somber. The kids are all sad to see, or not see, them covered. Doodlebug actually cried!
Our home altar. Behind the cloths:
The crucifix, flanked by rosary holder of Mary and St. Therese.
There are images of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus hanging behind the altar.
