Third Sunday in Advent

posted Dec 13, 2015, 10:58 AM by Tracy Mertz

Today we light the third candle, the rose / pink candle. This candle represents JOY, also called the Shepherd's Candle, it reminds us of the joy the world experiences at the coming birth of Jesus. 

The wreath holds four candles which are lit over the four weeks of Advent. Added together, the four candles symbolize the 4,000 years that humanity waited for the Savior.
