I read elsewhere on this site that someone was building an altar for personal prayer time at home.

This strikes me as odd because I'd think the only altars would be ina church structure?

Help!?

Not an altar for sacrifices, like at Mass. More of a focal point for prayer. Maybe a statue, pictures, a candle, a bible, etc.

K so kneeling in front of such items is ok? Should a Crucfix be placed front and center then?

Sorry, I simply don't know about such things :D

Regarding your second post, I think your overthinking. Just make a nice little Catholic prayer corner in your home if you want and pray.

No I am just curious, but I DO 'overthink' everything....I'm blessed with a hyper analytical mind :D

I'd no desire or intent to put any sort of 'altar' in my home. Am perfectly content to pray on the porch, on the couch, or anywhere it is quiet. Kneeling is something I would likely never do except at Church.

Anyway, thank you for your input and help.
