The fourth candle of advent: Peace

December 19, 2011 § Leave a comment

The fourth Sunday of Advent (which was yesterday, I know, I forgot!) is the candle of peace, or The Angels’ Candle.

The Angels’ Candle reminds Christians of the angels who appeared to the shepherds on the hillside, announcing the Savior’s birth.

“Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.'” Luke 2:13-14.
