Too Late to Light a Candle?

How’s your Advent Wreath doing?

Though you might be behind the advent wreath this year, you can still light a candle. Candles are a sign of hope, and are often effectively used in the Christmas Vigil and Easter Vigil Liturgies. There are a several scripture verses on light and dark. Here are two for reflection:

  • Isaiah 9:2 “The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shined.”
  • John 1: “In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”

Prayer: Act of Hope

O my God, relying on Your almighty power and infinite mercy and promises, I hope to obtain pardon of my sins, the help of Your grace and life everlasting, through the merits of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Redeemer. Amen.
