Prayer candles (worldwide)

Putting the class into mass is a most blessed breed of vending machine that sells prayer candles to 24-hour party pious people at various houses of worship including St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Church in Miami’s Little Cuba district. Not included in these machines: edibles (holy water, communion wafers), trinkets (rosary beads, miniature crucifixes) or salvation.
