The Hallmark of Paschal Candles for Over 155 Years

"I am the Alpha and the Omega - the beginning and the end", says the Lord God. - Revelations 1:8

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.

Every Will & Baumer Paschal Candle is made of 51% beeswax and hand tooled to ensure a blemish-free finish. Experienced artisans craft the ornamentation on each candle through hand-carving, wax-inlay and four color appliqués. A beautiful symbol of new life through the Risen Christ. Every Will & Baumer Divine Light paschal candle is designed with beauty and liturgical practice in mind. Handcrafted to burn with confidence for long-lasting, smoke-free performance. Incensed Paschal Nails come with all Paschal Candles.

The Book of Kells is the inspiration behind Will & Baumer's Kells Cross Paschal Candle. The elaborate artwork is full of delicate knots and links portrayed in fresh and vivid colors. More...

Will & Baumer has transferred the beautiful artwork of the Kells Cross, designed by Ellen Kamysz, onto our 51% beeswax candle through hand-carving, wax-inlay, gold foil stamping, and four color appliqué.

The Kells Cross Paschal Candle is hand crafted with our very own Will & Baumer color appliqué and applied by hand after the candle has been formed and finished. Place a Kells Cross Paschal Candle in your church and may its light penetrate every heart with the warmth of our Risen Savior!

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.
