Preparing for Great Lent: Our Lenten Candle...


This past Christmas I was given this gorgeous glass candle holder and instantly knew that I wanted to use it for a Lenten centerpiece this year.  I admire the wooden spirals that many families use in their Lenten journey, but wanted something a little more compact for our dining room table.  I purchased a beeswax candle and we are eagerly awaiting the start of the fast (March 18th this year) to start using it.  I'd like to light it right after Forgiveness Vespers on Sunday night, just before the little ones come in from church.  I hope that the candle will be all used up by the time Pascha comes...  then we'll have our pretty egg candle to use at meal times!
