Jesus said, “I am the Light of the world; the one who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have light and life.” (John 8:12)
If you know a person or situation that needs prayer, we can light a candle for you here at the Monastery.
When you light a candle for someone who needs it, whether that person is a family member, a relative, a friend, a neighbor, a co-worker, a leader or someone we met on the streets, it is a physical act of that constant prayer before God and an acknowledgment of the Light of Christ who reigns in all situations. We also affirm and witness to the purpose of our being here. No one really lives alone; God never desired anyone to live an isolated life. We were meant to be a community of God’s children.
Your candle offering is tax-deductible and will help us continue our ministries to Christians living in the Holy Land and to the Catholic Church here at home.
