Then I discovered these wonderful specialty devotionals. The first one I bought was the glass Our Lady of Guadalupe on the right. After that followed La Mano Poderosa, Saint Dymphna, Saint Michael and even the Santisima Muerte. They line the kitchen shelves my Dad made for my first apartment. I had no storage space, so he decided that I should display my food and staples.
Long since needing such storage, and seven residences later, the shelves still store popcorn and some other dry goods, but they are mainly there for my candles and other treasures. Those treasures include the memories of my Dad, the good times and friends in the other living spaces, the good and bad times gone by and all the saints who are still there to protect me.
