    I'm a practicing Roman Catholic, in love with the Tridentine (Latin) Mass.

    the Tridintine Mass is the latin Mass, very beautiful and moving- i remember it from childhood, making a comeback, slowly-

    Quote:many things we do as Catholics are reminders- just seeing a lit candle, reminds one what our focus is- seeing a picture of a saint is like seeing a picture of your mom or dad, reminding you how special they are...

    Thanks for the link! I do not specific questions now because I am basically clueless about the Catholic faith and their traditions.

    and to partly answer the question about "lighting a candle for someone", is that the smoke from a candle or an incensor signifies our prayers rising into heaven for that person.

    Now this is a very simplified answer but, that is all I have at the moment.



    I will look foreward to this thread next time I log on.
