Article telling why Catholics light candles in churches

see https://www.catholicnews.com/services/englishnews/2018/faithful-uphold-the-quiet-tradition-of-lighting-candles-in-churches.cfm

"Lighting a candle can symbolize the remembering of a loved one or a petition of prayer we make to God. We ask the saints to pray with us and for us during our most dire need. The light of the candle prolongs our prayer beyond our presence in church and shows our desire to remain in God’s presence as we go about our day.
