This is the tablecloth.

I'm not a religious person. When I came to United States I met my stepmother and she is very religious, she assists at the Catholic church in Brooklyn. This is a kind of tablecloth but my stepmother uses it as kind of religious poster, rather than as a tablecloth, my stepmother brings it every time we move and she puts it always close to the door, so “every time people leave or enters to my house they get a kind of good vibe,” she said.  This is very important for many Catholic people including my stepmother and I think this give hope to Catholic people, it makes them think that even if they had a bad day there’s a reason why was a bad day and the next day it will be better.
