Traditional Worship Elements
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. Christians often light candles in their homes as 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.
