What is the depiction of this Saint Joseph catholic devotional prayer candle?
Saint Joseph, dressed in a deep blue robe trimmed with gold and a crimson mantle, holds the smiling child Jesus on his right arm. Jesus holds a cross close to his heart. The little cross, made of wood, reminds us that Joseph was a carpenter by trade. A kind, wise, and humble protector, this adoptive father certainly had much wisdom and understanding to share with the growing child. Joseph generously offers his protection and fatherly guidance to all of God’s children as we commit ourselves to continuously grow in wisdom, devotion, and compassion on the Christian path.
Prayer on the Candle: O Glorious St. Joesph, faithful follower of Jesus Christ, to thee do we raise our hearts and hands to implore thy powerful intercession in obtaining from the benign Heart of Jesus all the helps and graces necessary for our spiritual and temporal welfare, particularly the grace of a happy death, and the special favor we now implore (state your petition). O Guardian of the Word Incarnate, we have confidence that thy prayers on our behalf will be graciously heard before the throne of God. 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.
