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.
“Christ is Risen, He is Risen Indeed!” is a Paschal greeting among Christians that originated centuries ago. Brilliant gold is used in this cross design to signify how dazzled people were who first saw the newly-resurrected Jesus, that they failed to recognize him.
We recommend matching Altar Candle Gold (G) and Red and Gold Nails.
The main color of this Paschal Candle is Red
