Oil Lamps from Holy Land Market
We offer oil lamps which are modeled after the lamps used by people of faith in Judea during Biblical times. These are commonly referred to as Herodian lamps, as they were used widely during the reign of Herod the Great.
Our lamps are made with dedication and care to make sure they look and feel like antique lamps. They are glazed and tested for oil burning, so you can start using them right away. We also offer brass oil lamps that are ornately designed and can be a great addition to your household.
Religious Candles from Holy Land Market
We offer candles that are made of genuine beeswax and can be used in liturgical rituals, celebrations, meditations, and prayers. Our candles are 100% organic and are handmade by people of faith from the Holy Land.
Catholic scholars believe that beeswax is the perfect material for making religious candles, as it is made by virginal bees and represents the pure flesh that the Lord received from Virgin Mary. Scientifically speaking, beeswax candles are a poignant choice for religious ceremonies and prayers as they emit negative ions while burning. These ions can purify the air and cleanse any negative energies.
Beeswax does not produce any toxic byproducts and burns longer than paraffin wax. It is also naturally aromatic and has a calming effect on people. You can get our candles blessed before using them to enhance their healing effect.
Religious Significance of Oil Lamps and Religious Candles
Oil lamps were extensively used by people in the Holy Land during Biblical times. Terracotta was the most commonly used material to make these lamps, although archeological digs and scriptural references show that bronze lamps were also used by many. Scholars say that the term “lamp” mentioned in Psalm 119:105 is actually a reference to the oil lamps that were used by people of faith during the reign of King David. The Roman Missal states that a sanctuary lamp fueled by oil or wax must be placed near the Tabernacle in order to honor the presence of Christ.
Similarly, the practice of lighting candles has been an integral part of liturgical ceremonies, prayers, and celebrations for centuries. The light that emanates from the candle represents the Lord Himself, who proclaimed “I am the light of the world” (John 8:12). It also symbolizes the Lord’s divine grace, which cleanses and blesses His believers.
