The symbolic Significance of Easter Candles
Christian candles aren’t just popular for Easter and are put up as sources of light with a great symbolic importance. Starting with Christmas candles and going all the way through to Baptism candles, their light expresses a closeness to God and Jesus. Candles which are put up for Easter and other celebrations shine the light of faith and provide an additional closeness to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
In the case of Easter, the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after his crucifixion, is celebrated. It shows us that God’s love is stronger than death itself and Jesus’ resurrection brings a bright light into the world and shines its valuable message upon the faithful. God is the beginning and the end which is shown on the Easter candles through the letters Alpha and Omega. In the Greek alphabet these are respectively the first and last letters and so they have a pivotal significance as the motif on candles for Easter to symbolise the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ.
Traditional Motifs for Church Services and more
Easter candles are used in the Holy- and Easter week. Here, they are an indispensable part of Church services and congregation celebrations. The lighting of Easter candles at the Easter Vigil has a long tradition. In many congregations this is celebrated with a special Church service and is celebrated into Easter Sunday.
