Lighting Candles for Miracles

Walked into an empty church  
where candles flickered beneath 

statues of saints, a place to kneel
and pray for intercession. 

St. Jude for the hopeless, 
St. Anthony for the lost,
donation boxes with locks

to keep visitors from stealing. 

How many times
were dimes stolen
or candles snuffed out 
and miracles 
never delivered?
