Light the candle, calling the person’s

name aloud three times as you do so.

Then say the following:

Spirit Mark hidden under stuff

“In the Name of the Father, the Son,

and the Holy Spirit, as this candle

melts, so does your heart melt for me;

you will show me the milk of human



Allow the candle to burn as you recite

Psalm IV. Here is that Psalm, from the

Douay-Rheims Bible:

Crown and radiance

When I called upon Him,

The God of my justice heard me;

When I was in distress,

Thou hast enlarged me.

Have mercy on me, and hear my prayer.

Oh ye sons of men, how long will you be dull of heart?

Why do you love vanity, and seek after lying?

Know ye also that the Lord hath made

His holy one wonderful:

The Lord will hear me when I shall cry to Him.

Be angry, and sin not:

The things you say in your hearts,

Be sorry for them upon your beds.

Offer up the sacrifice of justice,

And trust in the Lord:

Many say, who sheweth us good things?

The Light of Thy Countenance, O Lord,

Is signed upon us:

Thou hast given gladness in my heart.

By the fruit of their corn, their wine, and their oil, they are multiplied.

In peace in the selfsame I will sleep, and I will rest:

For Thou, O Lord, singularly hast settled me in hope.

Pray Psalm IV to soften their hard hearts

Allow the candle to burn itself out. If using tapers, prepare a new candle.

You have a choice to keep a candle burning continuously until improvement

is obvious, to burn it every day for one hour at the same time, or to burn it

for one hour at a time every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Whatever choice

of timing you make, be sure to call the person’s name aloud and to recite

Psalm IV on either a daily basis, or each time you re-light the candle. This

will continue to spiritually encourage that individual to behave kindly.
