Use this candle during the month of November or any time, to remember to pray for the souls of beloved friends and family members who have passed away, and for all the holy souls in purgatory, especially those who have no one else to pray for them. Burn it daily during prayer time or dinner. Following the instructions for use below, the candle will burn for about 40 hours.
The included fine-tip felt marker features quick-drying ink and a whimsical memento mori design. Latin for “Remember your death,” memento mori is a symbolic reminder that each of us will die, and face judgement, and should live our lives accordingly. “In all you do, remember the end of your life, and then you will never sin” (Sir 7:36).
Catholic All Year Handmade Candles are 100% beeswax + essential oils + natural resin incense. 9 ounce amber glass jar, wooden wick, black metal screw-on lid.
Instructions for use: Use a wick trimmer, nail clippers, or fingers to trim wick to 1/8-1/4 inch before each use. Avoid dropping debris in the wax. Upon first lighting, allow wax melt pool to reach the edges of the container before extinguishing to prevent wax tunneling. This may take 2-3 hours. Do not burn candle longer than 4 hours at a time.
