MOTHER OF GOD (CANTICLE OF SIMEON) 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 icon of Mary on the front.
On the back is the Canticle of Simeon, a prayer prayed daily at the conclusion of the Liturgy of the Hours, Night Prayer with its antiphon; it reads:
Lord, now you let your servant go in peace; your word has been fulfilled:
My own eyes have seen the salvation which you have prepared in the sight of every people:
A light to reveal you to the nations and the glory of your people Israel.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Votive candle measures 8"H x 2"D and is made with odorless paraffin wax.Please have 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 custom candles were designed and created exclusively by EWTN.
