Candles For Purification & St. Blaise

5th Sunday After Epiphany 2017

The powerful blessing given on the feastday of St. Blaise is not only for throats but for any other health problem and even for spiritual maladies.  We also take home with us a blessed candle on Candlemas Day. The candle is revered as a symbol of Christ Himself who is united with us through this most powerful sacramental.  We are encouraged to light a candle when we pray because by so doing we unite our prayer with Christ Himself, whose Body and Soul are symbolized by the candle we hold in our hands or display in our home.  The liturgical candle, made almost completely of the wax from virginal bees, is so important that not to have them lit during the Sacrifice of the Mass is a grievous sin.
