What does the red candle represent in the Advent Wreath?

Actually, though the purple and pink candles are more common, there is a tradition that celebrates the advent season with gold, green, white, purple, and red candles. I'm not sure where this variation of the advent wreath originated, but I have seen it practiced in Baptist churches. In sequence the gold candle is for the prophets, the while candle is for the angels, the green candle is for the shepherds, the purple (sometimes a blue candle may be used) candle is for the magi, and the red candle is for the Savior.

What does the candles on an advent crown mean?

There are, typically, 5 candles on an Advent Crown or Wreath. The four around the outside edge are red with a central candle being white. As each of the four Sundays in Advent are marked so each candle is lit and the central candle is only lit on Christmas Day. The first candle represents "Hope", the second God's "Peace", the third "Love" and the fourth "Joy". Obviously, the central candle reminds Christians that Jesus was born on Christmas Day. The Advent Crown or Wreath is significant in itself. During the period of Advent there are no flowers decorating the church but there is the Crown or Wreath made up of a circle of evergreen plants such as Holly and Ivy. The evergreen and circular nature of the Crown/Wreath reminds us that God does not change and the Holly is also a symbol of the Crown of Thorns that Jesus wore when He was crucified.

How many candles are there in the Advent Wreath?

There are four candles in the wreath itself - 3 violet (purple) and 1 rose. These are lit one at a time for each of the 4 weeks of advent. The purple links to the liturgical colour of advent. The pink candle is lit on the 3rd Sunday of Advent and represents joyful anticipation of the coming of Jesus.There is an additional candle added to the centre of the wreath at Christmas time (which can be red or white). This is lit at Christmas, symbolising the coming of the Light of the World.The wreath is very simple in design and readily assembled. All you need for materials are evergreen swigs, whatever variety you have available, usually fir or spruce, a 4-candle holder in a wreath shape, and 4 candles, 3 of purple and 1 of rose or pink, 1 each for the four weeks of Advent. The holder can be placed in a shallow platter containing some water. Place the candles in the holder securely, then drape the boughs of fir around the holder, twining and interlacing them. The water should be only enough to keep the underside of the greens fresh. The wreath should be placed on a suitable table set aside for this purpose and which has been draped with a pretty cloth, usually white, lace of plain. This all there is to the assembly. Advent is a season penance, but we live in a celebratory culture where the Christmas festivities begin almost Thanksgiving evening. Since traditional Catholics generally do not put up the family tree until just before Christmas, they sometimes add some decoration to the wreath in Advent colors, which are purple for penance and rose-pink for the third week, which begins with Gaudete Sunday, when flowers are permitted on the altar, for this once during Advent. The spirit of penance during Advent is not the same as that for Lent and some joy is permitted. Gaudete means "rejoice" and takes its name from the first word of the Introit for that Sunday. There is but one week to go and soonKing's birthday shall arrive. These decorations may be little colored balls, ribbons or berries. Most families keep the wreath plain. Below are two wreaths, one of each kind: the first with the candle ring of brass without greens. That is about some candles.AnswerThe Advent Wreath is composed of three violet candles and one rose candle. There is NO white candle, the Advent wreath is for Advent, the white candle for Christmas is a mistake by liturgists who do not understand that the Advent wreath is to mark preparation for the Lord, and when He arrives, we are no longer preparing, He is already here.

What do the five Advent candles mean?

Traditionally the Advent wreath is made of four purple (sometimes blue) candles around an evergreen wreath with one white candle in the middle. One purple candle is lit each week of Advent and symbolizes a different theme: expectation, hope, purity and joy, in that order. The first week, only one is lit. The second week, the first and second are lit, and so on. The center candle, known as the "Christ Candle," is lit Christmas Eve & Christmas Day as a celebration of Jesus as the light of the world. In some churches, the Joy candle may be red or pink. And in all churches, the wreath itself, always evergreen, is a perfect circle and a symbol of God's everlasting love.
