I have always loved the little votive candle...I did't think twice about how much they mean to the rest of the world, until I traveled out of the USA...

Votive are actions or offerings, or things vowed to God (or promised to a Saint in return for a miracle, offered in thanks for an already-answered prayer, or given in thanks for blessings not asked for.

Meaning-- vow made, graces received.
