Almost all ceremonies in the Orthodox Church - baptism, wedding, extreme unction, burial - are performed with candlelight. One of the most common Christian ceremonies is lighting of candles before the icon of the Virgin Mary and the Saints. 33 candles, scorched by the Holy Fire at the Temple of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, are particularly important as they are the symbol of the involvement to God and the Divine Fire. Candles lighting has a special spiritual meaning. It is a testimony of faith and commitment to transformation and expression of passionate love to God. Buying such candle, people sacrifice to God, and while lighting it, partakes to the cleansing flame of the Divine Fire. It is also believed that prayer and asking for faith with candle lighting will be heard faster.
