LIGHTING THE CHRIST CANDLE
As the darkness deepens, as the story gives us chills, we light a candle to remind us of the Light that can not be put out.
May its light give us hope, may it be a light when all other lights go out.
THE CANDLE IS EXTINGUISHED
The deed is done, the body has been laid to rest, the mourning has come.
And so we blow out the candle, hoping against hope that soon it will once again burst into flame.
