Light a virtual candle (178.160 have already been lit)

Lighting a candle is a gesture of spirituality around the world. Take a moment to think about your intentions for lighting a virtual candle: saying a prayer, honouring your loved ones who have passed away, in solidarity with a cause, a promise, a personal intention or to congratulate a friend.

Lighting a candle to Santiago the Apostle is completely free and the candle will remain lit for 48 hours.
