I've been waiting for this day to post a picture of the one and only shrine I saw on my recent trip to Paris. I found St. Joseph and Baby Jesus perched up high on a building in Montmartre, not far from the Place du Tertre. The appearance of the niche and the building's exterior is a bit sad, with the peeling paint and plaster cracks, but the statue seems to be in relatively good shape.
Below is a re-post of my entry from May 28, 2008 about a shrine of San Giuseppe in Palermo. On this day, I imagine the shrine adorned with fresh flowers and witnessing the bonfire that will take place tonight, in front of the neighborhood's church.
Humble shrine in an alley not far from where my relatives live in Palermo. On the feast of Saint Joseph, March 19, the shrine is decorated with flowers and candles. Sfinci di San Giuseppe - Sicilian doughnuts - are made and eaten on that day and bonfires are lit in honor of the saint and to celebrate the end of winter.
