25 hours? Why, because of the 2 hour time frame?
Thank you Gary, this is a wonderfull idea, combine :
WORLD PEACE with "DO UNTO OTHERS as you would have them do unto you."

I am now a member of DUO.

I light a blue candle every Sunday night without fail for world peace...the 21st September is Tuesday...so the blue peace candle gets lit that night as well...great to be either one spark in the dark or part of a mighty flame of hope.

A candle for Peace,
we need,
because the case is not at rest.

For the Day of sadness
a candle for courage.

A candle for hope,
against fear and distress of heart,
be discouraged if our faith
secret threatens to shake.

A candle, which would still,
as the most important of the world:"

A candle for Love,
humble set up,

that their lights to the Perplexed
for the return not missing,

because in the End,only Love
for humans really counts.
@Elli Michler....
I light this Candle...

Noted...thanks..have marked my calendar. Having read all of Deepak Chopra's books and having had the great fortune to meet Olga Worrall, I know that intentions are very powerful. You might call intentions by other names (prayer, vibrational energy, etc) but they do work...and to have many people around the world focused on the same thing at more or less the same time..wow...maybe the earth will "move"...

On my calendar now. I collect those tall glass religious candles you find mainly in Spanish stores and have one picked out just for it. When Pope John Paul II was dying I had one of the Virgin Mary lit for him the entire time. Haven't used that one since.

Every little bit we do for peace will have an effect .......... but at the same time we need to tell our governments all the time that we don't want any wars anymore!

I will have candle light in New Zealand ... and I will spread the word!

I HAVE SEEN THAT PEOPLE HAVE DECIDED TO LIGHT CANDLES< FOR THE SAKE OF PEACE"WHICH IS VERY NICE"...AS IT REMINDS ME THAT I DID LIGHT A LOT OF CANDLES WHEN I WAS YOUNG, FOR I WANTED TO DO SOMETHING TO PLEASE GOD, EVEN THOUGH I DID NOT KNOW HIM! BUT, MANY WENT BY SINCE I CONSIDERED MYSELF A GOOD CATHOLIQUE!_WELL,EVERYBODY WAS ONE!!-BUT,NOW,I CAN TELL YOU WHO READ THESE COMMENTS, THAT,YOU CAN KNOW WHO THE LORD IS, BY ACCEPTING CHRIST AS YOUR OWN PERSONAL SAVIOUR AND LORD, AND YOU WILL NO LONGER WISH TO BURN CANDLES, ONCE "YOU KNOW" THAT YOU "CAN" TALK TO HIM PERSONALLY, BY HAVING RECEIVED JESUS CHRIST IN YOUR HEART, TO BECOME A CHILD OF HIS!! IF YOU ARE SINCERE AND MEAN EVERY WORD YOU SAY TO THE LORD, THEN, HE ASKS YOU TO READ HIS WORD,(THE BIBLE), AND FIND IN THERE THAT JESUS HAS DIED FOR YOU, AND IS COMING AGAIN TO CALL HIS CHILDREN HOME..MAY GOD SPEAK TO YOUR HEART, EACH AND EVERYONE, AND SEARCH HIS WORD,"WHERE"YOU WILL BE FOUND BY HIM, AND YOU WILL BELONG TO HIM, (JESUS:"GOD WITH US" - MAY YOU FIND HIM AS YOUR SAVIOUR VERY SOON...!! GOD BLESS...Love, "me" xoxo

I am TOTALLY in favour of this idea and am absolutely planning on participating. Thanks for posting this! I think it is an excellent idea to cover a two hour span so that there will always be at least 1-2 time zones burning a candle!

We need a very big candle to make impact on those who do not love peace. The very same evil ones - on how to make them realize that we all want peace.

This is awesome idea.....maybe the "news hounds" will report on this. Perhaps if everyone was exposed to the more positive sides of humanity......remember..."random acts of kindness". It really is not that hard...just start with a smile, pass it on....I believe would have incredible impact around the world!
