Advent to Candlemas (Vol. 3)

Bring Your Candles

Bring your candles for a blessing
Spreading light in home and heart;
Comfort in the nights of Winter,
With the glow that they impart:
Tranquil hours of contemplation,
Prayers to comfort, prayers to heal;
Giving warmth to friends and family
As we share a homely meal.

Light your candles happy Gentiles,
That same light which Simeon saw;
Warmth to melt the frost of duty,
Love to overwhelm the Law:
Light a candle for the mother
Whose light comforted Our Lord;
Light of holiness and beauty
In His Sacrament and Word.
