Each Advent candle has a special meaning.
The first candle is candle of Hope, a purple candle. It represents God keeping his promises.
The second candle, also a purple candle, is the candle of Preparation. It reminds us to prepare our hearts for the coming of Jesus.
The third candle, a pink candle, is the candle of Joy. It represents the angels singing joyfully of Jesus’ birth.
The fourth candle, a purple candle, is the candle of Love. It reminds us that God loved us enough to send us his only Son to save us from our sins.
The white candle, lit only on Christmas day, is the Christ candle, which represents Jesus.
