View of a painting located inside St. Anthony Church depicting "El Sagrado Corazo´n" (or the Sacred Heart), which is a religious devotion to Jesus' physical heart and represents divine love for humanity. Below the painting is an offering of candles. In Christianity, candles were, and are, commonly used to burn before shrines towards which the faithful wish to show special devotion. A candle may be lit by worshipers in front of icons as an accompaniment to prayer. Candles are symbols that represent the light of God or, specifically, the light of Christ. St. Anthony Catholic Church was built in 1955 and is located at 1901 S. San Gabriel Blvd in the city of San Gabriel. Photo dated: December 23, 2006.
