disposing of blessed candles


#1

Apologies if this has been dealt with before but I couldn’t find a reference to it.
What should one do with the stubs of candles that have been blessed? We normally use unblessed candles but these were ones that I got in Lourdes, and today they burnt out. I salvaged the bits and labelled them, but what should I do now? :shrug:

I collect the stubs from Adoration. I have sometimes boxes of them. I burn them much like people burn vigil candles. I have a metal holder that holds the stub and the burn until gone. The drippings and little piece of wick are bagged up over the year and eventually buried.

Thank you!
