These celestial scents of spices, sandalwood, and incense are inspired by St. Michael the Archangel. He is the patron saint of police, soldiers, grocers, radiologists, doctors, mariners, paratroopers, the sick, and the dying, and he has been venerated as a healer from the time of the early Christians. His feast day, often called Michaelmas, is September 29.

Behind the Inspiration 
The name "Michael" comes from the Hebrew and means, "Who is like God?" Jewish tradition holds that this was Michael's battle cry when defending heaven against Satan and all the evil spirits. 

The incense in Battle Cry immediately brings to mind prayer and the Mass, reminding us of Heaven. The strong spices, which are a nod to his role as protector and defender, are softened by the sandalwood, which calls to mind his gentler role of accompanying the sick and the dying.

St. Michael the Archangel, pray for us.

Not so great

I was very disappointed that this expensive candle smelled more like cheep soap than anything else. I was hoping for the incense and spices to shine but not so.

Thanks for your feedback, Marcie, and thanks for giving the Battle Cry candle a try! Scents can be so personal and unique to different people! I just sent you an email to help further with this. - Anna

Second (and Certainly Not Last) Order

This is my second time ordering candles through Corda and I couldn’t be more pleased! The scents are incredible and the burn time is really good. I love being able to support a small Catholic business and have my prayer candles inspired by the Saints.

Thank you for your kind words and repeat order Madison! We are glad the candles help enhance your prayer! - the CORDA team

Love Corda Candles!!

These candles quickly became my favorite - and I used to not be a candle person! I light them to bring a lovely scent to my kitchen or to bring a sense of reverence to my prayer space.

Great for at home Mass

We used this candle when my brother celebrated Mass in our home. Even though we didn't have incense we had the St Michael the Archangel candle which was a close second to the real thing:) I love these candles and the extra reminders they give of the holy lives of Our Lord and the Saints.

Wow, what a beautiful experience! It is wonderful to hear that this scent was so meaningful. Thank you so much for sharing and for the review! - the CORDA team

Lasting Fragrant Candle

The Corda candle I purchased was very fragrant. It burns well and I will not hesitate to purchase another one.

So glad you enjoyed Battle Cry, Paula. Thank you for your review! - the CORDA team
