I  visited my catholic friends house and I came across this. I found this very interesting and immediately asked her what it meant. She explained that its a ritual her family follows whenever a family member passes. The candles are used to enlighten the way for the family member after they past. The candles and the frames all have religious images and one again the rosary is used. This ritual is a way to enlighten the member to the afterlife that way they enter the sacred space rather than stay in limbo.
