SHROUD OF TURIN (PRAYER FOR SINNERS - by ST THERESA OF LISIEUX & A NATIONAL PRAYER CHRON 7:14) 3 - DAY DEVOTIONAL CANDLE
This devotional candle is designed to burn for three days. It is encased in a sturdy glass holder with a print of The Holy Face of Jesus – Shroud of Turin on the front.
On the back is Prayer for Sinners it reads:
Eternal Father, since Thou hast given me for my inheritance the adorable Face of Thy Divine Son, I offer that Face of Thee, and I beg Thee, in exchange for this coin of infinite value, to forget the ingratitude of souls dedicated to Thee, and to pardon all poor sinners. O Jesus, Who in Thy bitter Passion didst become “the most abject of men, a man of sorrows,” I venerate Thy Sacred Face whereon once there did shine the beauty and sweetness of the Godhead; but now it has become for me as if it were the face of a leper! Nevertheless, under those disfigured features, I recognize Thy infinite Love and I am consumed with the desire to love Thee and make Thee loved by all men. The tears which well up abundantly inThy sacred eyes appear to me as so many precious pearls that I love to gather up, in order to purchase souls of poor sinners by means of their infinite value. O Jesus, Whose adorable Face ravishes my heart, I implore Thee to fix deep within me Thy Divine Image and to set me on fire with Thy Love, that I may be found worthy to come to the contemplation of Thy glorious Face in Heaven. Amen.
-St.Therese of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face
Also on the back is A National Prayer Assured by God to Solomon it reads: “If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” – Chron. 7:14
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 for EWTN.
