"I am the light of the world.
Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness but will have the light of life."
LET HIS LIGHT SHINE!!
In the Catholic church, light has always had a special significance because it represents
Christ. We know that Jesus called himself the Light of the world. Additionally, St. John’s
Gospel connects Christ with the imagery of light in John 1:4: “In him was life; and the life was the light of men.”
Lighting a candle for someone living or deceased is a way to both extend your prayers
and show solidarity with the person the prayer is being made on behalf of. We also believe in
the importance of our prayers for those who have died, asking the Lord to forgive any sins
they may have committed due to human frailty, but it is also a great way to keep their
memory alive as we honor who they were and the good they did. The faithful also light candles
as a sign of gratitude to God for answered prayers.
Here, at Our Lady of the Lakes, we want to offer you this opportunity to
pray for all your intentions with the Prayer Candles placed in our lobby.
These candles can be lit for:
- The health of someone
- In memory of someone who has passed away
- In thanksgiving for a grace or favor granted to you
- The intentions of someone dear to you (living)
To request your Prayer Candle, please fill the online form.
