A single candle flame breaks through the darkness.
The flame is a sign of hope and life.
During this season of Advent
we place our faith and hope
in the coming of the Lord Jesus,
the light that illumines the world.
We hope and pray that this holy season,
marked by a patient waiting for the coming of Christ,
may be filled with peace, joy, and love
throughout our world.
St. Gaspar del Bufalo and Mary, Help of Christians, pray for us!
