Hard Times for Candlestick Makers

Hard Times for Candlestick Makers

One of the things this article does not mention is that Orthodox churches use a lot of candles made from beeswax. Now, the population of bees, for some unknown reason, has declined though some scientists have speculated that the reason is due to some mutated genetic virus.

Also, the decline in the use of candles across all Christian confessions is probably due to many people thinking that candles are somehow too "Romish" and thus that practice must be excised from any pious practice. I didn't think that the light of Christ only had a monopoly on the Roman Catholics!
