Far From Sight, But Not Of Mind…

It is not usual to see in Catholic organisations to see candles lit in memory of those who have passed away or, in my case, to think of friends who are of the Catholic faith.

One of these friends is a Nun, so I am especially wish to light a candle for her. Therefore it was a no-brainer upon seeing this tray of candles in the private chapel upstairs from the “Kloosterbrouwerij Haagsche Broeder” (Brothers of the Hague Kloister Brewery), that I was going to light a few candles.

With the lighting of each candle I take a moment to reflect on the happy moments we have spent together, and how they might be faring, since they live many thousands of kilometres away. They may be far from sight, but they are definitely not out of mind.

The Statue in the background is bonus…

  1. Yes, lightning a candle in a church is a moment to reflect on those that passed away.
    But also for the living.
    Even more so when they are going through difficult times. 🕯️
