LET THE CANDLE BURN

In a country where inhabitants are predominantly Roman Catholics, and candles are a part of its religious rituals it always follow that all Roman Catholic Churches and Shrines have this candle stands to burn candles.

Roman Catholics believe that lighting a candle is a way of extending one's prayer and showing solidarity with the person on whose behalf the prayer is offered.

Candle stand at Sto. Nino Shrine, Matina this city.
