The Paschal Candle is one of the most sacred and enduring symbols of the Light of Christ, dating to the earliest days of Christianity. Made of beeswax to represent the purity of Christ, the candle’s wick signifies Christ’s humanity and the flame His Divine Nature. With this sacred tradition, Root Candles takes great care in handcrafting our made-to-order Paschal Candles in Medina, Ohio.
Root’s Fully Ornamented Paschal Design depicts a white lamb symbolizing the “Lamb of God” at the top of the candle. The Paschal lamb is a symbol of God’s deliverance of his people. The Alpha & Omega depict Christ’s words from heaven, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.” The bottom is adorned with white Easter Lilies, a symbol of Christ’s Resurrection; and with Gold bands that wrap around the candle.
We recommend matching Altar Candle White (W) and Red and Gold Nails.
