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

The lite Christ candle is surrounded by six purple candles, only two of which are lite

 

Light the Christ candle.  Light only two of the purple candles.

 

Question:   Why do we light only two purple candles?

Response:     We light only two purple candles to remind us that we have at

                       times not kept our eyes on Jesus.

 

Read:      Hebrews 12: 1-2

 

Reflect:    Who are some of the saints for you who are witnesses to Christ?

                 What happens in a race when the runner loses their focus?  Where 

                 has this occurred in our life of faith?

 

Pray:    Help us to be faithful witnesses to You.  Amen.
