Everyone Is Catholic Now…

Dollar General was recently carrying a “patriotic candle.”

It was one of those 12-hour prayer candles. But instead of Jesus or the saints, it featured readings from the Bible about praying for one’s country, Spanish translations of the same readings, George Washington’s Prayer, and a big photo picture of an eagle and a flag against a blue sky.

So basically, my impression was that it was an evangelical or non-denominational version of a Catholic prayer candle.

It was marketed for Memorial Day, and I’ll be interested to see if it shows up again for the Fourth of July.
