“Ornamented” Paschal Candle. 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.
A Paschal candle is a large, white candle used in liturgies in Western Christianity (the Roman Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion, and Lutheran churches, among others). A new Paschal candle is blessed and lit every year at Easter, and is used throughout the Paschal season which is during Easter and then throughout the year on special occasions, such as baptisms and funerals.
