Reminder: Buy Your Candles!
Just a reminder that this Saturday, February 2, is Candlemas, the day on which you can bring your household's candles to Mass to be blessed. Stock up for the year! Personally, I'd love to carry this into Mass, but once again, I'll probably restrain myself.
For the past few years, I've purchased Advent candles* in advance and had them blessed at this Mass. Having a few sets on hand can help you assemble thoughtful wedding gifts throughout the year (I combine them with a crucifix or small piece of sacred art, and a bottle of holy water taken from the church where the wedding takes place or another significant church).
*I have yet to find a better source than Hobby Lobby for Advent candles. My local store generally has the perfect pink and purple in stock, in multiple sizes.
