Blessed Candles


Available at any Catholic supply or online via direct manufacturer, bees wax is a ‘pure’ and more ‘natural’ wax. We teach how ‘purity’
is a ‘positive’ to combat the “negative” chaotic energies of the demonic. Again so many times it comes up; this is a battle of
positives versus ‘negatives’. Opposites repel. The candles should be blessed by a priest/pastor. One popular ‘cleansing’ method for a
room or localized area is in placing a lit candle in the center of a dish of ‘holy water’, with the candle base submersed, these stay lit
a long while so you could leave them lit over night. Some age old stories tell of these being lit during storms and the house being
untouched while others were demolished to the ground around it. ‘Votive lights’ lit for the departed is an offering such as a ‘novena’
set of prayers. All Catholic and Orthodox Churches have a place of ‘petition’ candles for prayer intentions lit to the Blessed Mother or
Saint Joseph. You might want to light one at the church (and be sure to donate in the metal receptacle at the base of the candle
alter), while you are handling your own, or another family’s haunting case.

Blessing Prayer: O holy Lord, almighty Father, eternal God, thou hast created all things from nothing; thou hast commanded the bees to produce this liquid of wax
which has been made into a perfect candle; thou hast on this day fulfilled the petitions of the just Simeon: We humbly implore thee through the
invocation of thy holy name and through the intercession of Mary, ever Virgin, whose feast we devoutly celebrate today, also through the prayers
of all thy saints: Deign to bless and sanctify these candles for human use, for the welfare of body and soul both on land and on water.
These thy servants desire to carry them in their hands while they praise thee with their hymns: Hear their voices graciously from thy holy Heaven
and from the throne of thy majesty; be merciful to all who cry to thee, whom thou hast redeemed by the precious blood of thy Son, who lives and
reigns with thee, God for ever and ever. Amen.

Lord Jesus Christ, true light that enlightens every man who comes into this world, bestow thy blessing upon these candles, and sanctify them
with the light of thy grace. As these tapers burn with visible fire and dispel the darkness of night, so may our hearts with the help of thy grace
be enlightened by the invisible fire of the splendor of the Holy Ghost, and may be free from all blindness of sin. Clarify the eyes of our minds
that we may see what is pleasing to thee and conducive to our salvation. After the dark perils of this life let us be worthy to reach the eternal light.
Through thee, Jesus Christ, Savior of the world, who in perfect Trinity livest and reignest, God, for ever and ever. Amen.
