Light a Candle at the Church of the Annunciation

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).

More information can be found here: 

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

I am a journalist writing a story about religion and technology and came across this post. Was just wondering if anyone has used the church's internet prayer service, and what they thought about it. Please send me a quick email if you would be interested in chatting (and I can give more details). Thanks so much!

Please pray for my intentions. I have be praying for to find where I can get a promotion in life of holiness with God and Our Blessed Mother.
I go to daily masses both of tradtional latin mass ( Sundays) Norvo ordos masses daily. I am an an altar server,lay-minister of communion.
Some Bishops tell me I have no vocation to be a priest and other say I do. I am poor and not working with a good paying job. I hoping to meet my local Bishop about making me a deacon right away and then a priest afterward. I am also a third Order Domincan and was taught be a priest whom taught 4 Popes in education in religion of the Roman Catholic Faith. So please remember me and other ones who are having a hard time like me. Thank you for your time in reading this. I am writing this in the best english gammar as all can understand.
