Already when we were kids, we used to light a candle in the church, a gesture that almost seems like a game, but full of meaning. And this gesture means light. The light was first created by God and illuminates our lives since the beginning, as we are baptized.
Together with altar linens, chalices and ciboriums, altar candles play an important role in the liturgy. Candlelight banishes darkness and reminds of the greatness and magnificence of the Love of God.
Normally altar candles are white, but they can vary according to the liturgical period and can be green, red and purple. All these lights are a symbol of the victory against death, as all believers are together in prayer.
In our Holyart.com catalogue, you can find different types of altar candles, in different forms and colours.
