Light your beeswax candles anywhere in the world to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary. “For thou art my lamp, O Lord: and thou, O Lord, wilt enlighten my darkness”. ~ 2 Samuel 22:29, Douay-Rheims.
These votive candles are designed to use in our prayers, during the Bible reading, in front of the statues, or icons of Jesus and Mary, as well as during the Home Enthronement of The Sacred Heart of Jesus and The Immaculate Heart of Mary. (PDF, Source: The Fatima Center Archive). Enthronement is a crusade to establish the Social Reign of the Sacred Heart in society through the family, the social cell. It is based on Our Lord’s statement to St. Margaret Mary: “I will reign through My Heart!”
“Because I want My whole Church to recognize that consecration as a triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary so that later on My Church will place devotion to My Mother’s Immaculate Heart beside devotion to My Sacred Heart.” ~ Jesus to Sister Lucy.
A candle is full of symbolic meaning, but we are saved not by a symbol, but by a real entity—God’s grace. Pope St. Gregory the Great (604 AD) said, “Learn of the Heart of God in the words of God so that you may ardently long for eternal things”.
Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary
Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary,
I Consecrate my entire self to the Most Holy Love of Your Two Hearts.
I Wish to make reparation for all the sins of the world, including my own.
I offer these things for the love of the Hearts of JESUS and MARY.
I will keep my mind on beauty and turn my thoughts from evil things.
I will not show off, but remain humble.
I will offer up all my sufferings, sickness and hurts.
I will seek God’s Will, not my own.
I will show appreciation for the kindness, the blessings that I receive, and God for all things.
I will do everything in my life for love of God. And I will love others, as God has loved me.
O Sacred Heart of Jesus, through the Intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
receive the offering and consecration I now make of myself to You.
Keep me faithful unto death. Bring me one day to the Happy Home in Heaven.
I desire to live forever with God the Father and the Most Holy Spirit and You my Jesus,
together with Your Most Immaculate Mother.
