Traditional Worship Elements & Contemplative Accents
Candles add warmth and beauty; they draw our attention and sharpen our focus, playing an important part in the life of a Christian. In many churches, they are an integral part of the service. Lighting candles in our homes is often an important part of a devotional practice.
In various denominations, at baptism, a candle is lit from the Paschal candle and represents the light of Christ, the Light of the World.
Many Christians light candles before representations of Christ, The Virgin Mary or the saints.
Our altar candle holders make beautiful aids to contemplative or meditation practices.
