Thank you for honoring and/or praying for those you love, remember, celebrate, or grieve through “lighting” our free candles. We are moved and humbled that so many around the world have found our Light a Candle feature to be such a comfort and support.
Many people appreciate being part of a community with a specific focus as they engage in candle-lighting rituals. As such, we offer the following way to informally affiliate with an issue, or a “group,” so that you can connect with others with shared concerns:
1. Commit to using a word that you all agree to use inside the message/dedication box (best to use an unusual word or an acronym associated with your “group” rather than a commonly used word like “prayer,” “love,” or “grateful”).
2. When looking for your group’s candles, search on the word you have chosen in the search field in the upper right hand corner of the page, as in this image:
3. All candles with messages containing that word will show. It is then possible to open the candles to read the messages.
4. After opening a candle within the group, use the back arrow to return to the grouping rather than clicking on “Back to Candles.” This way you can dip in and out of your “group” and also quickly see how many candles are lit:
We hope you find that joining with others to light candles in memory, honor, or celebration of those you love, or for concerns of your heart, will be a source of great comfort and healing.

I light a candle for you
I too have been struggling with depression due to a very prolonged illness. You are in my heart thoughts and prayers.
Hi Karen. When depressed I begin to thank for the gifts life is giving me each second e.g. air, water, sunshine (sometimes). And then I thank (in my mind) all the people in my life who gave me a chance, were nice to me, gave me a smile etc. and, and, and. And suddenly I feel love and gratefulness. If depressions are not too deep, this may help you too. Love Lord Henry
Thank you so much. It helped me alot.
