Hello, my name is Rebecca Targo. Welcome to my site about religious candles. Growing up, my family always had an alter set up with several candles set in the middle. During difficult events, I was allowed to light the candle and say a small prayer for the impacted individuals or communities. As a result, this practice played a big role in my ability to empathize with others. Although my Catholic family used a particular type of pillar candle, other religions often use different types of candles in their rituals. I would like to explore these different candle types and uses in the religious realm. Please visit often to see how candles are used in different religions around the world. I'd love for you to come back soon. Thanks for visiting.
