12 02 2018 - Blessing of an Advent Wreath day

Light one of the violet candles marking the season's first week, as you sing a verse of "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel."

Why do we use three violet candles and one pink (or rose) candle to represent these four weeks of preparation for Christmas?

Second Sunday of Advent – “Prepare a way for the Lord” 

We light a second purple candle on the second Sunday of Advent to represent the hope of Christ coming to the world.

Advent is upon us. The word means "coming" and the season focuses first on Christ's second coming at the end of time, and then on the historical reality of His first coming and His birth at Christmas.
