Light the Christ candle and the four purple candles.

Light a fifth purple candle.

 

Question:    Why do we light this candle?

Response:    We light this candle to lavish Christ with our worship.

 

Read:    John 12: 1-8

 

Reflect:    With what do you, your family, your church anoint Jesus in worship?

 

Pray:    You, Jesus, anoint us with Your wisdom, Your life, Your death 

            and Your resurrection.  Make our response a life in grateful service

            and self-giving love.   Amen.

 

Note:  You could also sing a favourite hymn of praise at this point.

          The candle lighting liturgies continue in the Holy Week section of

           Christian Seasons.
