Light a candle
The tradition of lighting candles for yourself and loved ones in Jerusalem
The custom of burning candles in a church is as ancient as the Christian faith itself. The light of the candle symbolizes Christ as True Light. Candle, lit before the icon is a symbol of prayer and a sign of spiritual aspiration to God. Wax, flowing like the tears of Christ, symbolizes the cleansing of man from bad thoughts, sins and diseases.In difficult moments of life, a Christian goes to the church and lights a candle to wash away the bodily and spiritual sicknesses. And prays, as was done for centuries, not only
for themselves, but also for their relatives and friends.
Since 325 AD, for more than one and a half thousand years, Christians put candles and pray in the temple of the Holy Sepulchre. We want every person to have the opportunity to turn to God and light a candle today in this holy place, even if the person is thousands of kilometers from the Holy Land. With our help, anyone can light their own candle or place it for a loved one. The volunteers of our project are deeply and sincerely believing people who understand the importance of fulfilling services. When they receive your order online, they go to the temple to light a candle in the place of your choice. They will take a photo of your candle and send it to you via email.
Our project does not charge for burning candles or delivering messages to the Holy
Sepulchre. We exchange the donations we receive in the Temple for candles.Because we do our duty to God by helping our brothers in Christ gain access to the main sanctuaries of our faith. This is our strongest prayer to the Lord.
