Okay, I don’t need an Oratory.
But I need one.

My Oratory will not be so elaborate
My husband, who is a very fine woodworker when he has time to indulge the hobby, has already been assigned the task of building me a prie-Dieu. I’m not expecting it any time soon, but I know eventually he’ll make something beautiful.
In the meantime, I am re-doing an old escritoire; hopefully most of my icons will fit on the shelves, and the writing-desk part will be for a seasonal icon, candles…maybe a little incense. A little vase for a posy.
Yep. Gonna put an Oratory in my bedroom! Someday.
But I’m excited, all the same! A quiet place to pray, at a time when we all could really stand to be praying.
What would your oratory be like? Where?
