Baptismal candle, 2013

Paschal candle, 2013

One of the most wonderful things there is: at the Easter Vigil the priest puts these grains of incense into the new Paschal candle, saying:

By his holy
and glorious wounds,
may Christ the Lord
guard us
and protect us. Amen.

Or, in Latin:

Per sua sancta vulnera
gloriosa
custodiat
et conservet nos
Christus Dominus. Amen.

Happy Easter to all, especially to all new Catholics this day!
