What is the depiction of the Hail Mary devotional candle?
Mary, dressed in pink with a blue mantle, sits with her hands raised over the open psalter in her lap. According to tradition, she was devoutly reading Isaiah's prophecy about our Savior's virgin birth when the Angel Gabriel appeared to honor her and proclaim her role as the mother of the Son of God. Gabriel kneels humbly before her, the light of the Holy Spirit streaming in over his head. He offers a white lily in recognition of Mary's purity. Her white scarf symbolizes her purity of intention, while her pink robe reminds us of her glad willingness to surrender to the will of God. Her blue mantle, the color of heaven, indicates her state of grace and favor.
With this devotional candle, Mary inspires us to open our own hearts to the will of God. She shows us the way to humbly listen and graciously accept whatever opportunities to serve that are offered to us as her devoted children.
Prayer on the candle: Hail Mary, full of grace, Our Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Warning: Burn candle within sight. Keep away from things that can catch fire. Keep out of reach of children and pets. Only burn on a heat resistant surface. Stop burning when 1/4" wax remains. Trim wick to 1/4" each time candle is lit.
