The Advent Wreath has had a significant resurgence in recent years. Because of the growing commercialization of the Christmas season, many families have found that the Advent Wreath has deepened their appreciation of the true meaning of this Holy Season. The individuals can light the candle or candles and read from scripture and use Advent Prayer booklets to prepare for the coming of the Christ Child. The three purple candles represent penance and longing; one is lit during the first week, two are lit during the second week. One of the candles is pink colored to symbolize joy; it is lit during the third week along with the two purple candles in glad anticipation of the birth of Jesus. Starting with the Fourth Sunday of Advent all four candles are lit.
Evergreens, a symbol of eternal life and ribbons symbolic of penance are often added in preparation of the Lord’s coming.
Many churches purchase these at a quantity discount to make available to their parishioners who receive them as a result of a donation. Some churches use the extra monies collected toward their Christmas Decorating Fund or toward Christmas Gifts to families in need at their Mission Church or in their community.
