Mt. Mary's Candles

t
Outside Mt. Mary's Church near Land's End, Bandra, you'll find stalls selling these candles. They are formed to represent anything, corporeal or inanimate, that one might pray for. Cars, a new house, a baby, a successful relationship, the healing of a leg, stomach, head, arm, or anything else that is ailing. The rows and rows of candles are creepy, but interesting.

I bought one shaped like a brain, and even though it was cool and unnerving to the touch, and I'm not catholic, I offered it up in the church, for my friend Uma, an Indian who, on a recent trip to New York to see her fiance, suffered a brain aneurism. She is currently in a coma in New York and needs to be transferred, at a cost of $20,000 American, to a specialty facility in Los Angeles. If you are interested in contributing to the Uma fund to help pay for her treatment, you can click here.

Best,
Robbie
