"Not long ago, it was possible to walk down the street and easily identify the homes where Catholics lived . . . If you entered one of these homes, there was never a doubt that you had entered a Christian home. In every room little touchstones of the Catholic faith were integrated with the more mundane objects of day to day life -- a Crucifix, a cluster of statues, prints of favorite saints, votive candles, and rosaries. In fact, these objects were part of day to day life."
