The Paschal Candle tradition has its origins in early church and it is believed that St. Ambrose made this candle prominent during the Easter season late in the third century. The term “Paschal” comes from the word Pesach, which in Hebrew means Passover. The flame of the Paschal candle symbolizes Christ’s illuminating light, and his presence in the midst of his people.

Redemption: Comes from the Latin redimere-to bring back or redeem. This describes our renewal through the Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Christ has liberated and reconciled the entire human race, graciously forgiving our sins and justifying us by His grace, if only we repent and receive His salvation.
