Why light candles?

In the glowing Our Lady of Mercy Candle Shrine located on Eden Hill in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, votive candles burn as outward signs of our faith. They reflect the warmth of our shared trust in the Lord.
Our shrine is one of the largest indoor candle shrines in the United States with more than 2,600 candles burning brightly for the many prayer intentions received.

Each prayer intention is kept strictly confidential.
All intentions are remembered by the Congregation of Marians each day during Mass and their personal prayers, and by the Divine Mercy Intercessory Prayer Ministry.
