While he was part of this community, he painted his first Easter candle — a depiction of Christ sitting on a throne and a book called “I AM. Painting the candle became an act of love, something wonderful and devoted that I could do for God and for the sacred liturgy; it became a prayer, and I actually prayed while I was painting the rosary or the Easter lamb. So I drew on the Easter candle two jewelled Greek letters, the capital letter A and the lowercase letter Ω, which were suspended from the cross-shaped quincunx. I wanted to avoid seeing brush strokes in the quincunx, so I learned to dab my brush instead of just painting it in broad strokes.

What color is the Easter candle?
During worship, the Easter candle is often transmitted from one person to another, which means the movement of Christ’s love and grace throughout the community. The flame of the Easter candle symbolizes Christ as the light of the world and his presence in the midst of his people. It means the divine pillar of cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night, which leads the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt. The purchase of a new Easter candle is an important moment for every parish, church, monastery, cathedral, etc.
The current year is on the Easter candle as a symbol of God’s presence in the here and now.

The Easter candle is the first candle that is lit with a flame from this sacred fire and represents the light of Christ that comes into the world.

Second, the documents insist that the Easter candle should not be placed in the post-Easter sanctuary, but near the baptistery. The norms point to liturgical preferences in terms of symbolic value but do not seek to answer all the logistical questions that may arise in Catholic church buildings that vary greatly in size, shape and style.
