These beautifully handcrafted prayer candles are made by the monks of the Monastic Order of Bethlehem. They are responsible for producing the Paschal Candles for all Holy Land parishes and those found in the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem. The monks meditate and pray as they create the candles in their monastery in Beit Jamal, 20 km outside of Jerusalem, and in the area where St. Stephen´s tomb is believed to have been found.
Two sizes available:
5.5 cm x 17 cm
6.8 cm x 24 cm
