The Advent Wreath

There are several traditions about the meaning or theme of each candle.The scheme that accords best with the Common Worship Principal Service Lectionary is: Advent 1 – The Patriarchs Advent 2 – The Prophets Advent 3 – John the Baptist Advent 4 – The Virgin Mary Christmas Day – The Christ

Each of the four Sundays then reminds us of those who prepared for the coming of Christ. ‘The Patriarchs’ can naturally focus on Abraham, our father in faith, and David, the ancestor in whose city Jesus was born. ‘The Prophets’ gives an opportunity to reflect on the way the birth of the Messiah was foretold. John, who proclaimed the Saviour, and Mary, who bore him in her womb, complete the picture.

Blessed are you, sovereign Lord, God of our ancestors: to you be praise and glory forever. You called the patriarchs to live by the light of faith and to journey in the hope of your promised fulfilment. May we be obedient to your call and be ready and watchful to receive your Christ, a lamp to our feet and a light to our path; for you ore our light and our salvation.

Blessed be God forever.
