Do any of you in the western rite have a home altar? If you do how is it set up?

Found on the net. Not a genuine WRO "home altar" but something close to it, I guess.

I'm currently in the process of assembling a home altar (process of completion is dependent on aquisition of disposable income) that combines a near equal mix of western and eastern elements, but leaning towards the former. I have that same icon of the pantocrantor in the above post, an icon of the Theotokos, as well as my rosary and a western crucifix. I'm planning on adding some statues and icons of western saints (such as Augustine and Benedict). I will post pics when it becomes somewhat presentable.

No Polish Christian home is complete without at least one image of Our Lady of Czestochowa. I'm of Polish heritage and I very much love the Czestochowa icon. I should really get one for my icon corner, but we do have one elsewhere in our home.

True. Smiley In my avatar you can see a version of this icon which can be bought at Polish Orthodox online shop.

That is a very beautiful one. The one we have at my house is a small one that is made like a "Russian silk" icon. It is similar to this one:

This is actually the original but with dresses and crowns on.

Orthodox Christians in Poland venerate also the Turkovitskaya icon which is a copy of Chenstokhovskaya one.
