Lighting the Paschal Candle 2015

Father Matthew Kirby during the lighting of the Paschal Candle on Easter Sunday Morning at St Hilda's Parish of the Anglican Catholic Church in Maitland NSW Australia 2015.
"Pasch" comes from the Hebrew word "pesah," meaning deliverance or Passover. This candle represents the risen Christ whose light dispelled the darkness (death), and the splendor and glory of His resurrection. It shows the Greek letters alpha and omega, the beginning and the end  (from the Book of Revelation), together with the five wounds of Jesus: the three nails that pierced his hands and feet, the spear thrust into his side, and the thorns that crowned his head. The wounds represented with the "nails" which pierce the actual candle.
