This made-to-order eximious® Paschal Candle Upon This Rock™ by Cathedral Candle is 51% beeswax and has the rich symbolism of St. Peter.
“I for my part declare to you are Rock, and on this rock, I will build my church, and the jaws of death shall not prevail against it. I will entrust to you the key of the kingdom of Heaven” (Matthew 16:18).
The silver and gold keys to the kingdom of Heaven entrusted to Peter by Christ. Whatever you declare bound on earth shall be held bound in Heaven and whatever you declare loosed on earth shall be held loosed in Heaven.
The inverted cross, which Peter requested to be crucified on, stating he was not worthy of being crucified in the same manner in which Christ was.
The eximious 51% beeswax Paschal Candles from Cathedral Candle Company are a tribute to the craft and the art of more than 100 years of exceptional candle making. Each and every eximious Paschal Candle, like the Upon This Rock eximious candle, is master crafted with the finest beeswax formulation and each candle is an individual work of art.
All eximious candles are individually bench worked and hand tooled to create intricate inlays, onlays and classic sculptured engravings.
Because of the workmanship required to bench craft each candle, please allow four weeks for the creation and delivery of your eximious Upon This Rock Paschal Candle.
