Votive candles silently flickering on votive candle racks in Catholic churches are as meaningful and eloquent as the fragrant scent of incense. Catholics light votive for prayer intentions especially the intention to say a prayer for another person. The candle is a symbol of that prayer. Votive prayer candles are also used on home altars in Catholic homes or placed beneath statues of saints in Catholic churches or in shrines. Shop with us for a variety of traditional votive candles that symbolize the power and beauty of prayer.
