Catholic Activity: Advent or Mary Candle II

This is an old German custom, but an easy practice to implement in Lent. This is also known as the "Mary Candle."

DIRECTIONS

This is an old German custom. A large candle, which symbolizes the Blessed Virgin Mary from whom came the Light of the World, is placed in a white silk-covered candlestick. The candle is to be put on the home altar, and is lighted when the family gathers for their evening prayers every day during Advent.
