The third candle

The third candle
is for joy

The joy of earth
The joy of heaven

Shepherds
And angels

A Message of salvation

The candle of the shepherds

An angel of the Lord appeared to them,
and the glory of the Lord shone around them,
and they were terrified.

But the angel said to them,
‘Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.  Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.  This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.’  Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, Glory to God in the Highest and peace to all people of good will.’
