Lighting candles

Whenever I find myself in a Catholic church I light candles. I'm not catholic but try to respect all faith traditions and this is a ritual I love. Its quite beautiful. Yesterday and today I lit candles for each of us in this process, another for my best friend, another for those I love and one last one for those I've not loved as well as I should have. I do love the ideas behind lighting candles.

You are more universal than you know. I generally try to find the common ground and light is usually a good place to start but I have been to one place where even the thought that I might have some light to share was threatening to the 'others.' Considering a mosaic, it's sad how some folks just get so used to an incomplete picture they never ever question an empty space.
