    The electric vigil lights?

    The fire extinguisher?

    The current archpriest?

  2. It took me a second, as my eyes were drawn to the red, but then I noticed the votive lights were my grandmother's electric Christmas window candles.

    Maybe the hydrant was put there by a Novie priest lest the flame of Tradition spring up!

  3. Grrr. I hate those things. If I'm going to light a candle, I want to touch a match to an honest-to-goodness wick, not turn on a horrid light bulb that makes a mockery of the whole thing! :(

    Oh... and what is that fire extinguisher even doing there, considering they've gone to so much trouble to get rid of the candles?

  4. I wouldn't go about criticizing everyone and then overly promote a certain group.

    That is called sectarian mentality, and won't do this nice apostolate good.

  5. I'm intrigued as to the need for a fire extinguisher for light bulbs...am I missing something?...

  6. I've seen this kind of electric votive candle in St. John Lateran too.
