Accept this Easter candle, a flame divided but undimmed, a pillar of fire that glows to the honor of God.
Let it mingle with the lights of heaven and continue bravely burning to dispel the darkness of this night!
May the Morning Star which never sets find this flame still burning: Christ, that Morning Star, who came back from the dead, and shed his peaceful light on all mankind, your Son, who lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen. –from the Easter Vigil Exultet
We are all lights from heaven
blessed from above as we
mingle with one another.
We may be divided, yet,
like the Paschal Candle
we glow to the honor of God.
Bring the brilliant light of Christ,
the light of our world,
to everyone you meet!
You are made from love.
You are made for love.
Love shines gloriously!
Listen to Thomas Merton:
“There is no way of telling people
that they are all walking around
shining like the sun.”
Oh Easter Joy!
Oh Risen Savior!
Bring our lights to life here on earth
and unite them to the lights of heaven.
May we mingle with the lights of heaven for all eternity!
