Healing Lord, I don’t understand why so many people have to suffer. Sadly, most of us have been touched by cancer in one way or another. It is so difficult to watch friends and family struggle with this terrible disease. In these times it is easy to point fingers, place blame or question Your plan. Help me to put my trust in You. Amen.


Matthew 11:28-30

Jesus said:
“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened,
and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,
for I am meek and humble of heart;
and you will find rest for yourselves.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.”

Our Lady of the Snows Candle

When a Votive Candle is lit, the flame and smoke represent prayers being lifted up to Heaven. This wonderful devotion has been part of our faith for centuries. At the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows, Votive Candles are lit for persons in need of healing. You can have a loved one lifted up in prayer while also supporting Oblate ministries with people in need.
