Paschal Candles 2017

Paschal Candle 2017

 

2017 PASCHAL CANDLE

Our Paschal Candle for 2017 has been designed by Sr Dorothy Woodward rsj and the nuns of Jamberoo Abbey. It features the Risen Christ bursting forth from the tomb in glory! Artists down through the centuries have used the image of the tombstone shattering to symbolize the energy, passion, power and sheer joy of the Resurrection moment for Christ and all humankind.

Easter Sunday shatters many things -
Gone is darkness and death!
Gone hopelessness and despair!
Gone fear and dread!
Gone our Lenten fast and discipline!

And from all that "gone-ness" and shattering,
NEW LIFE bursts forth, filling the void with light, joy, feasting, celebration and the singing of Alleluias!

As we light our Paschal Candles in 2017,
may Christ, the Risen One,
"Easter in us" ... Easter in our world! Alleluia!

Let Him Easter in us,
be a dayspring to the dimness of us.
G.M. Hopkins
