Symbols of Light in Christian Life
Candles add warmth and beauty, draw our attention to what is important and sharpen our focus. Candles play an important part in the life of a Christian and the Christian community. In many churches, they are an integral part of the service. Lighting candles in our homes may be important to our devotional practice. In various denominations, at baptism, a candle is lit from the Paschal candle which represents the light of Christ, the Light of the World.
For Christians, the practice of lighting candles dates back to the custom of burning lights at the tombs of the martyrs in the catacombs. These lights became known as vigil lights (from the Latin vigilia) since they are traditionally accompanied by prayers of watchfulness and waiting. Votive lights emerged as a way of expressing one’s need or desire for favor from the Lord, from Mary, or from a saint. Christians often light candles before images of Christ (in worship of Christ not of the image), and before images of the Virgin Mary and the saints (in veneration, not worship, of Mary and the saints, not of their images).
