Light a Candle

Donate to light a vigil candle or candles in honor of a loved one, here at La Porziuncola Nuova - Knights of Saint Francis of Assisi. When donation is complete you will be directed back to a page where you complete your candle request.

In the lighting of candles we remember and truly live the words of Our Lord: "I am the Light of the World." In the lighting of candles we not only pray, but our prayers become smaller symbols of the One Light of Christ. In burning candles, our prayers rise up to Heaven day and night; prayers for the saint's intercession are also common because of their friendship with God in Heaven. Saints are powerful intercessors. The lighting of candles has been observed since the early the time of the early martyrs.
