Prayer to Saint Francis of Assisi
Saint Francis of Assisi, protector of animals, you help us appreciate God’s gift of all living creatures. We especially thank you for protecting our friendly pets who help us get through trying times. Please bless my pet (name pet) who gives me such joy. Enlighten our minds so that we might help preserve all of God’s creatures, especially those endangered by our encroachment and neglect. Amen.
Each candle comes with a prayer to the patron saint, holy oil as part of the wax, and a prayer coin embedded into the candle. Before the first lighting, read out loud the prayer to the patron saint, then light the candle. Once the wax has burned all the way down after many uses, remove the coin at the bottom and keep it in your wallet, purse, or car - or bury it in your yard as a way of blessing the entire household.

When using the candle for the first time, leave it to burn for 2 or 3 hours, until all the wax has become liquid on the surface.
Regularly cut the wick with the wick trimmer (ideal length 3-5 mm).
Be sure to centre the wick in the wax after each use for consistent consumption of the wax.
