The Advent Wreath is a tradition that the Church has practiced for centuries! Each Sunday of Advent another candle is lit in honor of what Christ brought to us by becoming the incarnate God.
The ring, often made of evergreen leaves, represents eternity. The hope Christ gives us is not temporary, but remain with us forever.
Take a moment of silence to focus your thoughts.
The candle of Hope
This week we light the candle of Hope.
The hope of God’s people was restored in the coming of the Messiah and, as God’s people, we are to hold onto the hope that he is making all things new.
A prayer of thanksgiving to God for providing hope through Jesus.
A prayer of request that you might be a bringer of hope to your neighbors this Advent season.
