The practice of lighting weekly candles in the season before Christmas took its modern form in Germany in the late 19th century, and has been growing in popularity in America since the 1930s. Whether Advent is a new season or a familiar tradition for you, this set of Waiting Candles: Advent Reflection Cards will enrich your Advent practice.
The Advent Reflection Cards include Scripture readings and a short prayer to correspond with the candles for each week of Advent--Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love--as well as the Christ Candle on Christmas Eve. Printed on glossy card stock paper, each card also includes an original linocut drawing by Ned Bustard, illustrator of the bestselling Every Moment Holy books and prints. Finally, the Reflection Cards come with a Wooden Cardholder for easy display wherever you light your Advent candles. We also offer the accompanying Waiting Candles: Advent Candle Base by Liturgy Wood, if you need an advent wreath.
Card Dimensions: 6 x 9 inches
