The birth of Jesus is now imminent and we are about to celebrate Christmas very soon. In a few days’ time we will be celebrating the memory of that great event. On this, the fourth week of Advent, we light the final purple candle, called the “Angel’s Candle” to mark the final week of prayer and penance as we wait for the birth of our Saviour. The fourth Sunday of Advent symbolises Love. All four candles will be lit on our Advent wreath and we will have a full circle of light. The Lord brings the light of love to his people by sending His only Son to earth for our salvation.
