Which Advent candle is lit second?

The purple is lit second.


Does it matter if you light the rose candle at Advent and call it love?

Matter to whom? The four candles on an Advent wreath are there to represent the four Sundays of Advent, the third candle, which is the Rose candle, represents the third Sunday of Advent, which is Gaudete Sunday, meaning "rejoice". You may call it whatever you wish, but, officially, they just represent the First Sunday of Advent, the Second Sunday of Advent, etc.


What each Candle represents this on the Advent (3 4)?

All candles are sacramentals used in the Church's liturgy. The candles particular to Advent would be the candles on the Advent wreath, and these stand for the four Sundays in Advent, which is focused on penance and preparation for the coming of the Lord, both in His Nativity and in His Second Coming.


When do you light the fifth candle of advent?

The white candle in the center of the wreath is the 5th candle - that is lit on Christmas or Christmas eve at Mass.Roman Catholic AnswerTechnically the Advent wreath doesn't have a fifth candle. A fifth candle is making into something other than an Advent wreath. Advent has four weeks, and there is a candle for each week. The Advent wreath should be taken down before the Christmas midnight Mass begins. I think the "fifth candle" is some modern invention that makes no sense.


What DOES THE PURPLE CANDLE in the advent wreath mean?

The third Advent Candle? or the big Tall Candle? the tall candle is the Easter candle signifying the resurrection of christ. the Advent Candle, I think the third Sunday of Advent is a specific sunday. so the pink may signify that, but I'm not sur. Me neither! I love School! <3


What is the meaning of Advent candles?

The first purple candle means: waitingThe second purple candle means: hopeThe third purple candle means: joyThe pink candle means: peace.Catholic AnswerThe candles, and the Advent wreath itself, are NOT part of the liturgy officially, and are a common folk custom from northern Europe. The four candles were put on the wreath to signify the four Sundays of Advent. Three violet candles and one rose candle - for the color of the four Advent Sundays (purple and pink are NOT liturgical colors in the Catholic Church). The candles themselves have no meaning outside of what some have given them, they are not officially part of the church's liturgy and thus have no official meaning. Some people put a white candle in the middle to stand for Christmas, but this is wildly inappropriate as, thought not official, it is an ADVENT wreath, and Advent ends on the afternoon of Christmas eve.


When is the adventskranz lit?

On each of the four Sundays before Christmas (December 24th), one more candle of the Adventskranz (advent wreath) is lit. So on first Sunday in Advent it's one candle, second two candles etc.


When is each candle lit in the advent wreath?

The first of the four candles - usually, sometimes there's a fifth "Christ candle" - is lit on the first Sunday of advent which can fall on any day between 27th November and 3ird December. On the next Sunday of advent the second candle is lit in addition to the first; so there would be two candles lit on the second Sunday.By the third Sunday the third candle is lit, with of course, the other two candles of the past couple of weeks. The third Sunday of advent is often quite soon before Christmas day itself, when the fourth and last candle is finally lit, amongst the rest.
