Our Lady of Grace (Italian: Madonna delle Grazie or Nostra Signora delle Grazie) is of medieval origin, especially well known in France, connected frequently with the Marian sanctuary of Cambrai, France. One of the greatest means of salvation and one of the surest signs of predestination, is unquestionably, the devotion to the Most Blessed Virgin. All the holy doctors of the Church are unanimous in saying with St. Alphonsus of Liguori: “A devout servant of Mary shall never perish.”
Catholic Candle Prayer
Lord Jesus Christ, true light that enlightens every man who comes into this world,
Bestow thy blessing upon these candles, and sanctify them with the light of thy grace.
As these votives burn with visible fire and dispel the darkness of night,
So may our hearts with the help of thy grace be enlightened by the invisible fire of the splendor of
the Holy Ghost, and may be free from all blindness of sin.
Clarify the eyes of our minds that we may see what is pleasing to thee and conducive to our salvation.
After the dark perils of this life, let us be worthy to reach the eternal light.
Through thee, Jesus Christ, Savior of the world,
who in perfect Trinity liveth and reigneth, God, forever and ever.
