Lead from the Shrine… Queen of Courage and Perseverance

My sister Melba and I are the only ones living at home, but our home shrine becomes the liveliest when the immediate family (7 brothers & sisters, 16 nieces & nephews, 20 great nieces & nephews) and friends come to visit.

The most obvious symbol in the shrine is the crown on our MTA on which all 43 members of the Valdez family, as well as deceased grandparents, are represented. The other most important symbol, besides the jar for contributions to the capital of grace, is the scepter that represents our Mother Thrice Admirable reigning as queen of our household & family side by side with our king, Jesus Christ. The Sacred Heart of Jesus was enthroned in my home the same day prior to my home shrine dedication on October 26, 1991. We crowned the Mother Thrice Admirable in thanksgiving as Queen of Courage & Perseverance on February 18, 1989.
