Divine Mercy | Hyssop + Wood

Regular price $21.00

These redemptive scents of hyssop and wood are inspired by Divine Mercy. The feast of Divine Mercy, instituted by Pope St. John Paul II, is celebrated on the second Sunday of Easter, concluding the Octave of Easter.


Behind the Inspiration

Hyssop appears in the Old Testament multiple times and is often used for cleansing. In Psalm 51, the famous lament and cry for mercy, David begs God "Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow." The first time hyssop appears in the Bible is at the Passover, foreshadowing Christ's redemptive love on the Cross, as hyssop was used to spread the blood of the lamb upon the wooden doorposts. 

And in the New Testament, in John's gospel, hyssop is present at the Crucifixion. When Jesus upon the wooden Cross cries out "I thirst," hyssop is used to give the Paschal Lamb sour wine. It is at this moment, right before he gives up his spirit to the Father, that Jesus cries out for us. And it was there at the Cross that Jesus's heart was pierced, from which blood and water gushed forth as a fount of mercy for us.

  • Keep out of direct sunlight

New Favorite Scent

I have enjoyed several of the CORDA candles in the past that I received as gifts. Battle Cry was my favorite until I discovered Divine Mercy. Such a beautiful scent that is not overwhelming, and really makes my prayer space cozy and relaxed. The packaging was perfect and it shipped very quickly. Thank you, Anna, for all the beautiful work you do! Will definitely be a returning customer!

Soothing Scent

I originally bought this candle because it was the Divine Mercy candle, and I had no idea what to expect from a "hyssop + wood" candle, but I LOVE it! The scent is so soft and relaxing. I like very neutral and clean scents and this candle is both in a unique way. I love it and will be ordering another one. :)

Beautiful and Holy

Corda candles have a unique twist on your traditional home candles. They not only smell lovely, but are so beautiful and elegant. Inspired by the Saints, they ignite all of our senses for worship. These candles remind me to pray as flame catches my attention in my office. Whatever Saint I have chosen to pray with, gives me hope that I’m praying with a friend and together petitioning the Lord for answered prayers.

I would also like to mention Anna is the sweetest. We are praying that God continues blessing Corda.

Amazing gift

I got three candles to give away as gifts and they all smelled amazing. The ordering process, shipping and packaging were all perfect. Can’t wait to order more.

Love and Peace

Lovely cent. Just makes me feel loved by the mercy of God. I keep it by my divine mercy frame. I will come back and order other candles too.
