Candle Lighting – Monday of Holy Week, Year C, 2010

The lite Christ candle is surrounded by only four lite purple candles while two remain unlite

The lite Christ candle is surrounded by only four lite purple candles while two remain unlite

 

Light the Christ candle.  Light only four of the six purple candles.

 

Question:   Why do we light only four purple candles?

Response:    We light only four purple candles because there are times when

                    we have failed Jesus as his disciples.

 

Read:     Isaiah 42: 5-9

 

Reflect:   We are given as a light to the nations.  When have we hid the light

               of Christ?  When have we given our praise to idols instead of to

               God?

 

Pray:     Forgive us when we choose to sit in dark prisons, giving Your glory 

             to idols.  Take us by the hand and lead us again so that we may

             reflect Your light to the world You so love.      Amen.
