BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD (CHRISTMAS ANTICIPATION PRAYER) 3-DAY VOTIVE CANDLE
This devotional candle is designed to burn for three days. It is encased in a sturdy glass holder with a beautiful image on the front of an embellished detail of The Adoration of the Shepherds originally created by Italian painter, Lorenzo Lotto (c.1480 – 1557). On the back is a verse from Scripture that reads: "Behold the Lamb of God, Who takes away the sin of the world!”– John 1:29. Also on the back is the Christmas Anticipation Prayer which is also known as the Saint Andrew Christmas Novena because customarily it begins on his feast day (November 30th) and is prayed 15 times a day until Christmas. It is a lovely tradition for the whole family!
Christmas Anticipation Prayer
Hail and blessed be the hour and moment in which the Son of God was born of the most pure Virgin Mary, at midnight, in Bethlehem, in the piercing cold. In that hour vouchsafe, I beseech Thee, O my God, to hear my prayer and grant my desire, [here mention your request] through the merits of Our Saviour Jesus Christ, and of His blessed Mother. Amen.
Votive measures 8"H x 2"D and is made with odorless paraffin wax.
We suggest having your candle blessed by a Priest when you receive it so it can be used as a sacramental.The tradition of the Church has always placed importance upon sacramentals such as blessed candles. One of the most remarkable effects of sacramentals is the virtue to drive away evil spirits whose mysterious and baleful operations affect sometimes the physical activity of man.
These candles were custom designed and created exclusively by EWTN.
