My mother was baptized Catholic but is not a practicing one. She has never enforced any of her beliefs on my sibling or I. It was not until the death of our neighbor, and her parents that made her want to go to attend mass and reminded her of her faith. Once collecting their items, photos, and religious belongings did she make this shrine in her closet that is placed at eye level for her to “speak to” in the mornings or whenever she feels like it, content or confused. This shrine is a glimmer at the respect that my mom holds for the deceased and continues to show in her day to day reality.
