Like any church ceremony, lighting a candle in a temple has a deep symbolic meaning. The candles lit symbolize the light of God.
A candle is a sacrifice that we offer to God, one of the few things that we can give him as a gift. In essence, lighting candles is also a prayer. This is no less, if not more important, an appeal to God than submitting notes to churches.
For the first time, our charitable fund offers the opportunity to light a candle for you in the temples and monasteries of Greece. This is a very important project which took a lot of time and effort: it is not always possible to turn to some church or monastery with a request for prayer for you and your loved ones. Now you have the opportunity to do this at any time and from any part of the world — to light a candle online in the temples and monasteries of Greece!
On this page, you can choose a monastery or a temple where you would like to submit a request to light a candle for you or your loved ones. Let this sacrifice be accepted by God!
