The Hallmark of Paschal Candles for Over 155 Years

Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13:8

The Sacred Heart Paschal Candle reminds us that Jesus' heart is like ours—at the center of our being, giving life and love at each moment, the warm core of our desires and emotions. Through His Sacred Heart, Jesus desires to be the center of our lives, where His love 'never fails' (1 Corinthians 13:8).

This Sacred Heart Paschal Candle illustrates the fire of Christ's love that is human and divine, constant and unfailing, to be counted on in all circumstances.

The devotion of the Sacred Heart of Jesus came about in the 12th century. Though theologians such as Saint Bonaventure addressed the concept, it was mainly through the life experiences and writings of Saint Mechtilde of Magdeburg, Julian of Norwich, and Saint Catherine of Siena that the devotion really grew. Popularization of the devotion rose to new heights during the 17th century with the help of Saint Francis de Sales, Saint John Eudes, and most of all, Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque.

The careful attention to details of centuries-old architecture is highlighted in the design elements of the gold bands and the gold cross. The Sacred Heart is predominantly placed in the middle of this artistic creation, symbolizing that Christ's love for us is central to His human and divine nature.

The Paschal Candle is the symbol of Christ Jesus, our risen Savior, the Light of the world. Christ is also symbolized as the Paschal Lamb of the New Covenant.

Paschal Candles symbolize Christ rising in glory, conquering death and darkness. A Paschal Candle consists of 51% beeswax and is adorned with the symbol of a cross, an alpha and omega, and with the date of the year presented.

Each candle also has five grains of incense inserted on the cross representing the five wounds of Jesus. The Alpha (first letter of the Greek alphabet) is typically placed above the cross representing Christ as the "beginning" and the Omega (last letter of the Greek alphabet) is placed below the cross representing Christ as the "end", thus symbolizing His divinity as well.

The date of year is usually placed on either side of the cross or below it. Paschal Candles may also feature colors and design components that are symbolic of Christ, God the Father, and the Holy Spirit, and/or are suited to the liturgy of Easter.
