What is the depiction of The Powerful Hand candle?
The right hand of our crucified Lord, bearing the stigmata, stands with fingertips piercing the clouds. Each finger is attended by a member of the Holy Family. Our mother Mary stands at His index finger, hands clasped to her heart in prayer. Joseph stands at her side, holding a white lily. Mary's parents, St. Anne, and St. Joachim are placed at our Lord's fourth and fifth fingers. St. Joachim holds a book while St. Anne's hands are open before her. The Christ Child stands at the Hand's thumb, holding a globe to indicating his dominion over all creation. His right hand is raised in blessing.
An angel under the thumb of the Powerful Hand carries the cross tenderly on his shoulder. On the other side of the Hand, a weeping angel holds a spear and a vinegar sop while looking up to witness the crucifixion. Another angel holds a red bowl to catch Jesus' blood.
The palm is shown to us victorious, wounded but no longer bleeding. This Powerful Hand of God has complete sovereignty over each situation in our lives. This is the hand of mercy that protects and guides us according to God's own unfathomable wisdom.
Prayer on the Candle: I place my Christian soul before Thee, and in midst of despair and anguish, beseech Thee to bring the most powerful strength of Thy Helping Hand to come to my rescue. I place the devotion of my sorrowful heart at thy feet that I may be pardoned form a destiny of suffering. May the loving kindness of your Sacred Heart help me and give me strength and wisdom to live in peace and happiness. (Here present your petitions). 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.
