You can't believe what an impression reading saints stories made on me in my protestant youth...windows into heaven!
Sacrementals are a sweet gift. The Sacraments are fountains by which Heaven touches us.
(and of course, I have religious art and zillions of things like Rosaries and prayer books scattered everywhere around me...having been deprived of them growing up, I appreciate their value!)
Maybe I'm a silly old woman, but I am thankful to a God who knows how to touch and comfort silly old women!

Well, being a silly old man I have some idea of what you are talking about! :)
