Mother’s Day White Memorial Candle

Today is Mother’s Day and the whole world celebrates the hardest working person on the face of the Earth. While many of you are planning to attend religious services and/or take Mom out to lunch or dinner, shopping or maybe send some flowers and a card, there are those, like me, who have had their Mother pass to another place. Despite being a Mother of five myself and a grandmother of 5, I miss having a Mom to call when I have to rant about the rising cost of groceries, or ask how to get a stain out of something that seems destined for the rag bag. Here is a a simple, yet touching way to honor that woman who gave you birth.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 White glass 7 – day Novena type candle
  • Blessing or Healing Oil
  • Small saucer
  • Rose or Carnation in a bud vase
  • Photograph or image of your Mother
  • Clean candle with lemon juice or alcohol, let dry completely. Choose a small table or fireplace mantle for your set up. Place a white kerchief or crochet lace doily there with the photograph and the bud vase with flower on it.

    Take the white candle and pour a few drops of the oil into the top of the candle, rubbing it or swirling it around clockwise to send that healing or blessing out. Place candle on saucer, then on the doily, light it and pray the Psalm 23 or an Hail Mary. Let it sit there and burn until done.
