The Season of Advent

November 15, 2010 | Author: | Posted in Liturgical Calendar, T, The Season of Advent

Christians anticipate the joy of Christ’s birth by lighting the candles of the Advent wreath.

Whether at church or at home, most Christians share the excitement of waiting to celebrate Christmas by decorating an Advent Wreath and lighting the symbolic candles.

The meaning of each of the four coloured candles is usually brought to life by a short devotional reading or dialogue. The four weeks celebrate hope, peace, joy, and love, in turn. A taller white candle called the Christ Candle is lit on Christmas Eve.

The Catechism stresses the two-fold meaning of this “coming” : “When the Church celebrates the liturgy of Advent each year, she makes present this ancient expectancy of the Messiah, for by sharing in the long preparation for the Savior’s first coming, the faithful renew their ardent desire for His second coming” (No. 524).
