Lightning Storm Subsided After Blessed Candle Lit -ED

A Sacramental: Blessed Candle (lit 07/04/2022)


"We are dealing with the aftermath of Tropical Storm Colin here (i.e., major downpour w/ big

lightning strikes; dog going crazy...) just lit our properly blessed 100% beeswax *candle and said
Hail Marys... the storm then subsided - our pup is now literally sound asleep. Deo gratias!" -ED


*"We must put confidence in these holy candles for the prayers of the Church have ascended to God, that 'He
would bless and sanctify them for the service of men and for the good of their bodies and souls in all places.'
Pious Catholics light them during thunder storms, that God, in consideration of Christ, whom they represent,
may deign to protect His servants. Let us light them whenever we are threatened with calamity, and if we do
so in a spirit of faith, we shall experience signal proofs of God's fatherly care of us." (Source: "The Sacramentals
of The Holy Catholic Church, Or Flowers from the Garden of the Liturgy", pp., 46-47, Imprimatur 1879 A.D.)

Euthanasia is now a leading cause of death in Canada only a few years after being "legalized". A person can be granted, by the Canadian government, approval to kill themselves over the so called health condition of hearing loss!

Thank you from a Catholic in Sweden! 500 years after the Reformation-Schism robbed the people here of their Catholic faith, the church is returning. Hallelujah!
