Lighting the Paschal Candle is always such a special moment of tribute at the start of a Catholic Mass and a vital part of the ceremony live stream. Bobbie’s family did the honour at her funeral at Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Church in Randwick and we made sure to capture the moment in the funeral live stream.
The symbolism of the Paschal Candle
In moments of grief and loss, we often turn to age-old traditions that bring comfort and light amidst darkness.
The Paschal Candle holds great symbolism in many religious and spiritual traditions. It represents the eternal light of Christ, signifying the triumph of life over death. When lit at a funeral, it serves as a powerful reminder of hope, resurrection, and the everlasting presence of a loved one’s spirit.
As the flickering flame dances upon the Paschal Candle, it illuminates the space and hearts of all those gathered. It reminds us that even in our sorrow, there is a glimmer of hope and a promise of new beginnings.
The act of lighting the Paschal Candle is a collective tribute to the life that has passed away. It signifies our shared journey of mourning, reflection, and ultimately, celebration of a life well-lived. It unites us in remembrance, offering solace and support to one another.
Beyond its religious significance, the lighting of the Paschal Candle also invites us to find light within ourselves. It encourages us to embrace the memories, teachings, and love left behind by our departed loved one. It inspires us to carry their legacy forward and find strength in the connections that transcend the boundaries of life and death.
So, the next time you attend a funeral or memorial service, observe the lighting of the Paschal Candle with reverence. Allow its gentle glow to touch your soul, reminding you of the eternal bond we share with those we love.
May the flame of the Paschal Candle guide us through our journey of grief, illuminating our hearts and reminding us that love transcends time and space.
