Keep A Light Burning
Light is considered pure, it dispels darkness, it nourishes life and illuminates everything. As such light became a befitting symbol for God, the ‘Blessed Savior’, as referred to in the bible as “the light of the world” [John 8:12]. In addition, wax has its own symbolic meaning, the wax being spotless, is supposed to represent Christ’s spotless body, with the wick within it representing his soul and the glowing flame representing the Divine Nature united with the human in one Divine Person.
