Light a Candle
Upon entering an Orthodox Church, it is customary to light candles and offer prayers for one’s personal needs or that of a family member or friend. Candles are lit before icons as a sign of one’s faith and hope in God’s help that is always sent to all who turn to Him and His Saints with faith and prayers. The candle is also a witness of our faith, and expresses our burning and grateful love for God.
