I was visiting the Year 3 children of St Joseph's School today to talk to them about the significance of the Paschal Candle. Once again I forgot to take my camera with me so I am afraid their are no photos.
We talk about how the candle was made. The phrase 'fashioned from the work of bees' from the Exultet came to mind. We also looked at the decoration of the candle and the meaning behind the desgin.
Do please keep the children of our school in your prayers as they prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation on Pentecost Sunday. Pray that they will be faithful soldiers of Christ.
