The Sorrowful Mother Shrine is a place I enjoy going to whenever I can. One of my earliest memories with my grandmother was at this Shrine with her lighting a candle in one of the grottos. So for me, this time of year when I think of lights I think of those candle lights and the prayers and hopes that each one represents...

Wow...what great memories you've shared of special times with your grandma. Those are the best, aren't they?

Thanks so much for sharing!

That's fantastic! I would love to have a place like that. I usually go in the Chapels at the hospitals and light a candle for the sick. That's really great that you can go there.

Thanks for stopping by.

So often our everyday lives go on and on with grocery shopping, cleaning, working and doing it all over again and again. We need December to break the cycle and though it seems the busiest time of the year, we should step back, look at life and the world a little differently. This is a great picture to help us do that and a wonderful memory; thanks for sharing.

Lovely photo. Wonderful memory of your grandmother. Seeing candles lit in prayer is always touching.

Have a good weekend.

So beautiful. I am not Catholic, but I have also found that the candles in the churches representing prayers is a beautiful and reasuring tradition. I even like the smell of the candles and the lighting in these old churches.
