I received a very interesting email concerning the Church of the Annunciation in Nazareth. For the first time, Catholics will have the opportunity to light prayer candles in the Church of the Annunciation from the comfort of their homes. Catholics have the opportunity to choose a time for a prayer candle to be lit and watch live video of a priest lighting a candle for them at the Church. The Bishop of Nazareth has blessed the activity. Also worth noting, the service does cost $10 (USA).

For information on lighting prayer candles, see my post entitled Why do Catholics light prayer candles?
