The Mass will begin at 7 pm at the Bishop O’Connor Center.
Bishop Morlino will bless candles brought by parishes and people before Mass. All are invited.
Candles are symbols of sacrifices. They are like living things. They eat and drink the wax from the bees, which reminds us that sacrifice can also be sweet, not just bitter. Candles breathe air. They move in their flames as they flicker. They communicate to our eyes a beautiful. They die at the end of their span. They are consumed for the Lord in all our liturgical rites. So should we be. Using candles during important times is a wholesome Catholic practice.
