The First Sunday of Advent

Happy Advent! 

This is the season where we prepare our hearts and homes for our celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, the son of God.  The first candle on the advent wreath is the prophecy candle. 
It symbolizes the messages from God that the prophets of scripture shared which foretold
of Christ, specifically his birth, but also his life, death, resurrection, and reign eternal. 

This candle is also sometimes called the "HOPE" candle because it reminds us of the hope that we have through Christ alone.

Soli Deo Gloria.
