Great Balls of Liturgical Fire

Apparently, the Ambrosian rite (Archdiocese of Milan) lights (or lit) this globe, covered with cotton fibers and decorated with cross, palms, and a crown, to celebrate certain feasts. The fast-burning ball symbolizes of the life of a martyr being consumed by the love of Christ at the moment of death.

From Per Christum, a worthy blog, now on the side bar, which also has a great post on the burgeoning vocations in certain religious orders and the 900 Protestant pastors (400 Anglican and 500 other) who have converted in the last 20 years.
