Votive candles


Despite our pleas to the contrary: Last Sunday there were twelve votive candles burning while precariously balanced on ledges of the candelabra in front of St Antony. From time to time we see very young children playing with the lighted candles, moving them around the sconces with no adult giving attention. Once when children of similar age were doing much the same their flowing hair came within an inch of going up in flames. Reluctantly we have been forced to accept the advice of our insurers that this is a risk of serious personal harm that we cannot tolerate. From the requirements of the Safeguarding authorities comes the same advice: Get rid of the lighted candles. So shortly we will move into the ways of the modern era and go electric.
