I am wondering how others store their religious items, such as holy cards, medals, novena booklets, etc. Shelf, drawer, box?
I have a shelf on my bookcase which I'm probably going to have to occupy with books sometime soon ... it's got a large and beautiful picture of Jesus and His Sacred Heart, nestled between the books. In front of it, there are laid out the few holy cards that I own. A couple more are in the shelf above, in my theology books, as bookmarks. I have a wooden box in which I keep my breviary and an old copy of the missale romanum. On top of these, I have my 5-6 medals laid out. (I only have one chain, so I switch occasionally) They are mostly french, picked up in WWII by my grandpa.
This is next to my nightstand. Next to it, on my nightstand, I have a small bottle of holy water, and a candle which I got from the episcopal church. When I am in a sinful mood, I sometimes light it to remind me of hell, and the futility of heresy...
I've got a sort of box of drawers thing I found sold as damaged at Pier I. It's a large wooden "box" with two side-by-side drawers in which I keep my Rosaries, holy cards, medals, incense -- the little things like that.
All of my other stuff is out:
