A candle is…

For my friends who like lighting candles or diya in a church, cathedral, mandir, gurudawara or at home.

The below is quoted from a paper that is given out in St. Paul’s Cathedral in London:

Jesus said:

“I am the light of the world. No follower of mine shall walk in darkness.”

St. Paul’s Cathedral

A candle is a reminder
it recalls Jesus, the one true light,
whom the darkness could not extinguish.

A candle is a parable
burning itself out, it gives light to others.

A candle is a symbol
it speaks of light, hope, warmth and love.

A candle is a sign
it reminds us of the prayers of God’s people.

Jesus said “Let your light shine.”
