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

"Many people have been consoled to know that a candle will burn for their intention for a whole year," says Fr. Dan Papineau, MIC, Rector of the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy. "This is an aspect of our 'Light of Remembrance' devotion that Helpers really appreciate.

"It also means so much to me as a priest to bring their intentions to the celebration of the Holy Eucharist and the Hour of Great Mercy devotions at the Shrine."

This spring marks the first anniversary of this wonderful opportunity.

One of the first participants in the Light of Remembrance, Rachel from Massachusetts, wrote in to express how much the devotion means to her: "I am overjoyed! I view the continuous flicker of the flame as a tongue in constant prayer before the throne of God. The flame flickers on in prayer, and I join it in prayer from afar. You have offered a dream come true for many -- a 'merciful candle devotion.' A candle lit for one's intentions around the clock for a whole year! It's so special and dear to my heart."

Part of the appeal has to do with the special nature and spirit of prayer found on Eden Hill, and, of course, the consecration to Jesus, The Divine Mercy.

As Rachel concluded in her letter, "Does not Jesus tell us to pray without ceasing? This devotion helps us to fulfill that command."
