I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life. Jn 8:12
A lit candle serves as a reminder of Christ, who is the light of the world, yet the light itself also speaks to us of knowledge (illumination) and sacrifice (the flame consumes the candle).
We invite you to light a candle at the Shrine of St. Jude. Just as the flame speaks to us of Christ and knowledge and sacrifice, it also represents the prayer or petition you send us. As the candle burns and remains lit, so too does the flame repeat your prayer again and again to God.
We are once again able to offer you the ability to have your prayer or intention displayed in front of a lit candle within the Shrine of St. Jude!
We have installed digital signs in front of our permanently lit candles which permit us to display your prayer or intention with the ease of a few keystrokes on a computer.
Here is a brief video in which I show you the digital signs and how this new system works.
We ask for a donation of $1 for a single day, $5 for a week, $20 for a month, $100 for 6 months, and $200 for one year.
