Lighting of the Advent Candle
4th Sunday in Advent - Year C
December 20th, 2015
Here's a litany for the lighting of the 4th advent candle ("love") for the 4th Sunday in Advent (Year C), December 20th, 2015.
Without love, we have nothing,
wandering aimlessly in a world without hope.
As the season of Advent comes to a close,
we wait for love by practicing it,
by embodying the truth we trust in God-with-us.
We seek to live as people of love,
reciprocating that which has first been shown to us.
We light this candle to symbolize the love we have in Christ's presence.
We gather to share this love with one another.
