Many religious traditions also involve candle-lighting ceremonies. For instance, Jewish celebrations often involve lighting candles representing blessings for their people. In some ceremonies, both religious and non-religious, the flame of the candle may represent the light within each person. Candles also create romance and a relaxing ethos. No matter where you decide to use candles, they’ll create a warmer, more welcoming environment not only for guests but for yourself too! In most every part of Catholic celebrations and rituals, lighting of candles play a very significant role. Candles are lighted during the celebration of the Mass, on liturgical and funeral processions and evening prayer ceremonies. Candles are lit before the Tabernacle to signify the Lord’s presence in the Blessed Sacrament and to call for reverence on the part of the faithful.
