Winner Family Home Shrine - DeGraff, Ohio

September 23rd, 2011

The Winner Family named their home shrine, Our Reason for Thanksgiving, The Nativity’s Most Holy Mother of God. “In each stage of life we feel the closeness of Mary’s presence in our home as she educates and defends our family.  Sheltered beneath our Lady’s mantel we seek protection and direction as we complete our daily tasks.  Before her enshrined image we have often comforted a colicky baby or a feverish child.  It is within our home shrine that we grieved the loss of our son.  Under Mary’s watchful eye we admonish and correct misbehavior.  And many hours have been spent there praying for teenagers, or asking for direction as they choose a spouse.  We also gather here to celebrate and commemorate sacramental milestones; Baptism, Reconciliation, First Eucharist, Confirmation, Matrimony. Our Lady is intricately bound to our family’s rhythm of life.  Through her Motherly care and protection we have found direction, strength, healing and comfort.”
