The Fourth Week in Advent

In Christmas, Religion, Spirituality on December 24, 2006 by Eliacín

-“Why do we light four candles, Papi?”

-“The first candle is a reminder of the light of the hope of the prophets.

The second candle is a symbol of the light and the warmth Joseph and Mary found in the stable.

The third candle reminds us of the great light and joy that sorrounded the shepherds at the announcement of Jesus birth.

The four candle reminds us of the light of the stars in the sky which guided the Wisemen to Jesus and which keeps watch over us by night.”
