Sacred Heart of Jesus Beeswax Altar Candle

Regular price $14.99 $0.00 Unit price per

The latest addition to our 100% beeswax altar candle collection - the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

“From the April 2018 Newsletter of the Committee on Divine Worship

Prior to the Second Vatican Council altar candles were to be composed primarily or to a significant extent of pure beeswax, with the exact percentage determined by the diocesan bishop. The candle itself was given a mystical meaning: the beeswax symbolized the pure flesh Christ received from his Virgin Mother, the wick symbolized his soul, and the flame his divinity.”

-usccb.org

The tradition of using pure beeswax candles for our altars and churches has been watered down as access and affordability have come into question. We would like to keep the tradition alive by offering altar candles made of 100% local beeswax - straight from the farm! These beautiful candles will enhance your prayer life, and emit a subtly sweet honey-like aroma.
