Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
Ya’ll, my friend had an amazing miracle happen to her during her religious education class on Wednesday, September 19, 2018.
My friend teaches 5th grade religious education. She always begins her class with a procession into the classroom with a bible, crucifix and a lit candle.
She and kids placed the items on the table in the classroom and prayed together. Then they sat down and she began teaching them about prayer.
A little while into the class a boy noticed that the candle on the table had gone out.
My friend went and grabbed it and said, “yes it has.” She took the opportunity to talk about the Sanctuary Candle that is lit next to the tabernacle in our churches.
She held up the burnt out candle but explained that when you see a lit sanctuary candle it means Jesus is present in the tabernacle and you should always be reverent and not nonchalant or ignore Jesus.
She said you should imagine that Jesus is standing there and that we should acknowledge him with a genuflection, sign of the cross, and prayer.
And you guys…. when she said this…. THE CANDLE RE-LIT INTO A BRIGHT WHITE LIGHT, larger than it had been originally!
The co-teacher and children exclaimed that they had just witnessed a miracle. 7 kids and two adults all saw the candle re-light! I kid you not!
GOD IS SO GOOD.
I share this with you so that you can all know that in these dark times… THE FLAME OF LOVE IS WITH US.
