Disposing of Paschal Candles

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

We have several Paschal candles from many years back in the day.  What is the best way to discreetly and reverently dispose of these candles?  What are your thoughts and suggestions?


The Marklin Candle company will give you a wax credit, but probably just on their products. I think the best solution is to burn them in non-eucharistic settings. Offer them to parish groups when they have meetings. Give them to families who could light them for daily prayer. Slice them with a sharp blade and burn them as smaller candles.
