The Last Candle: Christmas Day

Christmas Day is traditionally when the last candle on the Advent Wreath is lit. With this candle we remember the birth of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. May the flame of this candle remind us that you are the light of the world and that if we follow you, we will never walk in darkness, but will have the true light of life.

The line "We honour Messiah with the Christ-Candle's flame" is taken from last verse of the Advent hymn that was introduced in the first Advent banner.
