Prayers can move mountains...

These are not just ordinary candles - I lit these candles at the church of Santo Niño de Cebu when I was in Cebu (Visayas of Philippines) last January for the annual Sinulog Festival. The said festival was joined by visitors and tourists from different cities and countries to witness the rich religious culture of Filipino people.

Lighting candles when praying symbolizes God's presence and light shining in the darkness of our minds and hearts - caused by our imperfections as human beings. It also invites God's holy presence in our lives - to cleanse us from our sins, to be better people with worth and to be God's instruments of light to others.
