Each candle includes holy oil, and an Italian prayer coin embedded in the candle. The prayer coins have been blessed by a priest and a rabbi.
Saint Michael, protector of soldiers and first responders, defend us in battle and service. Protect us against the malice and snares of those who would do us harm, as well as the dangerous conditions that exist where we do God’s work protecting others. We humbly pray that you watch over (“me” or a loved one), your humble servant in the line of duty. Amen.
