Queen of the Home
Our Lady of Providence is also known as Queen of the
Home. Many Catholics call upon her mercy to protect
their homes and families. Each member of the family
wears an Our Lady of Providence medal as a symbol of
the importance of family and home life. Catholic families
pray together, wearing the Our Lady of Providence necklace,
asking for her intercession with Jesus to keep their
families strong in faith and love for one another.
