Requesting a Sanctuary Candle
Why Do We Light A Candle?
Jesus said: “I have come into the world so that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness.”
Lighting A Candle Is A Prayer
When we have gone it stays alight, kindling in the hearts and minds of others, the prayer we have already offered; for the sick, the sad, the suffering, for those who have died, for the peace of the world and for ourselves and prayers of thankfulness too!
Lighting A Candle Is A Parable
Christ’s light to others, it burns itself out. Christ gave himself for others…he calls us to do the same
Lighting A Candle Is A Symbol
Lighting a candle is a symbol of love and hope, of light and warmth…our world needs them all.
