The Candle Of Light

  school candle 

Light is pure.  It penetrates darkness; it moves with incredible velocity; it nourishes life; it illumines all that comes under its influence.  Therefore, it is a fitting symbol of God, the All Pure, the Omnipresent, the Vivifier of all things, the Source of all grace and enlightenment.  It also represents our Blessed Savior and His mission.  He was “the Light of the world”[John 8:12, NAB] to enlighten “them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death.” [ Luke 1:79, NAB].   The candle is also the universal symbol for the light of knowledge.
