Premium 100% Beeswax in quality glass jar container will burn for 3 days straight (or 72 hours) once lit. Made in the USA. Approximately 5″ tall x 2.75″ diameter.
A sacramental reminding us of Mary’s virginal birth; the 100% beeswax symbolizing her virginal purity. The wax is produced by the virginal, queen bee of the hive which then encases the wick, the light, Jesus Christ.
Another meditation is:
“The wax produced by the honeybee is considered the sweetest and purist, the most appropriate for symbolizing the humanity of Christ. It is produced by the bees actually consuming honey (honey itself is a symbol for the superlative in sweetness, the sweetness of the Word of God). Christ identifies himself as the Light of the World and he says in Luke 12:49, “I have come to light a fire on the Earth. How I wish the blaze were ignited!” A flame will spread to what it touches. The candle also symbolizes Christ’s presence in the individual believer.” – Catholic Answers
These candles do not come pre-blessed. It is not in accordance with Canon Law to sell anything that has been blessed. Therefore, if you wish to have these blessed, you can do so once you receive them.
