St Antony

has come into the modern world. You see the fine array of electric candles by his statue. Thank God the danger of the burning wax has gone. It is good that there is still such a devotion to St Antony and confidence in his prayers. The act of lighting a candle is a prayer. I think many who do it would not find it easy to explain just how it works. But it is a recognition of the great web of love that streams from God moving through generations of different saints and people and down to our personal cares and worries. It is the communion of saints, belief in which we profess every Sunday. Lighting the candle – whether it be a burning flame or electric - is an expression of our confidence in the support of this family.
