I know what you mean. When I was in RCIA and learning the Mysteries of the Rosary, I taped a Mysteries prayer card to my monitor to help me remember. Then a Divine Mercy. Then a Spiritual Warfare. At the Easter Vigil, I was given a plastic-bead rosary that was safe for work (I work in a detention center), so I hung that off my monitor as well. Then when the Diocese's vocations campaign put out a bookmark-sized calendar of Holy Days of Obligation, that went up. too. Add to it little orts that either get left behind by departing detainees or confiscated during shakedowns -- a crucifix that had broken off a rosary here, a St. Patrick medal off a saint's bracelet there (anything altered from its original form is contraband and must be confiscated), and I've got a legitimate shrine on my desk. Once or twice, I've worried that I've overdone it, but I've never had a single complaint. Not from a detainee, not from a staff member, not even from the whacked-out shrinks we have now. (Oh, how I miss the counselors we used to have!)
I will admit, though, that this evening I put away my little vial of Jordan River holy water that was on top of my CPU. The bottle is glass, which is verboten
. The company's #2 guy is flying down for a visit tomorrow, and I can't run the risk of him noticing the bottle. It's been there for years; I have no idea what made me realize just tonight that the bottle could get me into trouble.
