“Prayer enlarges the heart until it is capable of containing God’s gift of Himself.” – St. Teresa of Calcutta
Children can partake in the beautiful traditional act of “lighting a candle” during their prayer time with our beautiful wooden prayer candles. The light of the candle is a symbol of our prayer, offered to God in faith.
This simple and beautiful act, invites children to pause and direct their attention towards the Lord. Like adults, the physical act of lighting a candle reminds them that their prayers are real and are heard by God. Our Montessori-inspired candles allow for hands on interaction, cultivate imagination and require no dangerous electricity or batteries.
Children love “lighting” the solid wood toy candle with the included wooden flame disc- then taking it out and doing it again! Whether on a bedside table, shelf, or family altar- these candles are a beautiful call to prayer for children of all ages.
Each candle is printed with beautiful religious artwork on the front, and a corresponding traditional Catholic prayer on the back. Candle without flame disc measures 6 inches tall.
Our Lady of Guadalupe
Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared in Mexico in 1531 to St. Juan Diego. One of the most beloved images of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the apparition of Our Lady of Guadalupe is credited with the conversion of the Americas. She is the patroness of the unborn and the Americas.
A favorite of European toy manufacturers, our new wood sets are crafted using highly sustainable solid rubberwood from Forest Stewardship Council certified sources, and non-toxic water based paint.
Rubberwood is a highly sustainable and beautiful hardwood. Trees that have finished producing latex on rubber tree farms are cut down to make room for new trees to be planted. Instead of wasting this beautiful wood, it is used to create a variety of home goods and toys! We've very intentionally selected rubberwood for this reason, to avoid deforestation and ensure our wooden toys are truly environmentally friendly.
Conforms to all ASTM standards for toy safety.
