Remembered on Eden Hill
"Light of Remembrance" brings comfort.

"I believe in intercessory prayers, and the 'Light of Remembrance' devotion offers this 24 hours a day -- this is a most important element for me," said Mary Ann of Houston, Texas.

In these times of great uncertainty and concern, many Marian Helpers like Mary Ann are finding solace in this unique, year-long votive light.

Fr. Dan Papineau, MIC, the Rector of the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy, says that, by lighting the first candle with a prayer for the person's intention, this devotion "brings together the Marian priests and brothers with their supporters in prayer."

After lighting the first candle, Fr. Dan places the prayer intentions in the sanctuary of the Shrine, so they will be remembered at Holy Mass and during the perpetual novena to The Divine Mercy throughout the year. To signify your intentions, Fr. Dan will also have your name, or the name of a loved one, etched in the glass globe that surrounds your votive light.

As a sign of continuous prayers, Fr. Dan established a special "Light of Remembrance" for all the victims of the attacks of Sept. 11. The victims, their families, and everyone affected by these acts of violence will be lifted up in prayer every day by the Marians on Eden Hill.

For details on a "Light of Remembrance," memorials, or tributes, call Donna Saliter at 1-800-462-7426.
