Oscar Wilde Prayer Candle in Coral Pink - Soy with Non-Toxic Wick
The Catholic Church has finally come around and decided to embrace Oscar Wilde (http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/the-vatican-wakes-up-to-the-wisdom-of-oscar-wilde-1750093.html) and that got Geneva Fiore, prayer candlemaker extraordinaire to thinking,
"Why don't I make some prayer candles for Dear Oscar?" After all, if the definition of a Saint is someone we know for sure to be in Heaven, and Oscar Wilde converted on his deathbed, not leaving much time for any sinning, then surely he must be in Heaven. Yes?
"Furthermore, if the role of a Saint is to inspire us, and to pray for us, to make our case to God on our behalf, can you think of anyone who could make your case more eloquently than the glorious Oscar Wilde? Of course not. There is no one.
"So I am starting the crusade that will hopefully lead to his canonization. I can't help but think that he would get a kick out of this, and maybe he is laughing at me right now. But in all honestly, I would dearly love for Oscar to watch over me.
"I propose that he could be the patron Saint of writers, comedians, Ireland, theatre-folk, smart-asses, trouble-makers, instigators, and of course, the gay community."
Fantastic prayer candle. Two design choices in two colors, both unscented. Both show Oscar with his left hand to the side of his face, but one has him holding a walking stick in his right hand.
Dear Oscar, Please help me to see the joy and humor in every day of my life. Please help me to find something to apprecite in all of God's children, no matter how trying. Pray for me, dearest Oscar. And please let the world see your goodness and bravery so tht we might learn by your example. Oscar, please keep my spirits high and watch over me always. Amen.
Humorous, yet classy, prayer candle.
