The traditional advent wreath has four candles, one for each Sunday in Advent, three purple and one pink. Some more modern traditions (commonly Lutherans) use advent wreaths with four blue candles. If they are all the same color, it doesn't matter what order you light them in, so I presume you are asking about the tradional pink/purple candles. The candle opposite the pink candle is lit first, on the first Sunday of Advent (or the vigil service on the Saturday night before). There's no real rule about going clockwise or counter clockwise, as far as I know, but the second Sunday means lighting the first candle as well as a second purple one. On the third Sunday the pink candle is lit along with the previous two purple ones. On the fourth Sunday all four candles are lit. Many congregations and families also use a white candle in the center to represent Christ; this is lit on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.


The candle is lit one by one to represent the 4 days of advent.


The Advent wreath is a Christian tradition that symbolizes the passage of the four weeks of Advent in the Western Church. It is usually a horizontal evergreen wreath with four candles. Each Sunday in Advent an additional Candle is lit, so that by the Sunday before Christmas all four candles are lit.In Catholic churches (of both the Roman and Anglican traditions), The first two candles are purple, the third candle is pink and the final candle is purple. The basis for the colors are that purple is was once the color associated with royalty, it symbolizes Christ as the "Prince of Peace." Rose or Pink is the color for the Third Sunday of Advent, known as Gaudete Sunday from the Latin word "rejoice." Gaudete Sunday anticipates the joy of the Christmas celebration, so its color is a mixture of Advent purple and Christmas white.There are several interpretations of the symbolism of the Advent wreath.The accumulation of light is an expression of the growing anticipation of the birth of Jesus Christ, who in Christian faith is seen as the light of the world. The circular wreath represents God's eternity and unity. Evergreens are a symbol of enduring life. In some traditions the first candle is called the prophet's candle and is meant to signify the hope of Jesus' coming. The second is called the Bethlehem candle in honor of the city of Christ's birth. The third candle is the shepherds' candle. The final candle is the angels' candle, symbolising the angelic proclamation of joy at Christ's birth.


It is an advent wreath. Each Sunday before Christmas a candle on the wreath is lit to celebrate the time leading up to Christmas.


Four Candle in a ring. Usually either 4 purple, or 3 purple and one rose-colored candle (for the 3rd Sunday in Advent. Sometime Advent wreaths will add a white candle in the middle, the Christ candle. This is lit on Christmas day.I have heard that sometimes the blue is substituted for the purple candles.


There a four candles, three are purple, lit on 1st, 2nd, and 4th Sundays of advent; one is pink, lit on the 3rd Sunday of Advent as a sign of rejoicing. On Christmas a white candle is added in the center and the others extinguished as sign of Jesus presence.


It depends on the service and the candle. Typically the answer is simply yes. However, during Advent there are some candles that are not lit until the appropriate Sunday. The Paschal candle is lit only during the Easter season, at funerals or baptism.


Great question! :)There are four candles in total, three purple and one pink (rose). These correspond to the four weeks of Advent before Christmas. The purple of the purple candles symbolize a penitential tone as one prepares for the coming of Christmas, while the pink (rose) candle symbolizes a joyful tone.The rose candle is lit on the third Sunday, Gaudete Sunday, when the priest also wears rose vestments at Mass; Gaudete Sunday is the Sunday of rejoicing, because the faithful have arrived at the midpoint of Advent, when their preparation is now half over and they are close to Christmas. (Fr. William Saunders, The History of the Advent Wreath. Arlington Catholic Herald)Note: Gaudete is Latin for... Rejoice! :)
