Description
 
Our San Damiano Paschal Candle reflects the symbolism of the San Damiano Cross beautifully expressed by Ellen Kamysz in another one of our finest 51% beeswax Paschal Candles. Here again, the gold foil stamping, wax-inlay and four-color appliqué is delicately applied by hand onto each candle.
An icon is a "window to heaven." Among the many fascinating images in this San Damiano icon is a portrayal of the Ascension at the top of the cross, with Christ appearing from a red circle carrying His golden cross scepter, welcomed into heaven by a host of angels beneath God the Father's extended hand. Note the holy angels around the crossbar, and on the right lower side of the cross a small rooster, recalling Peter's poignant denial and reminding us to be ever vigilant in our own faith. Finally we see at the foot of the cross the four most beloved saints of the Franciscan Order: Saint Francis, Saint Clare, Saint Anthony of Padua, and Saint Bonaventure. This candle reminds us of the tender love of Jesus, who spoke to Saint Francis, "Francis, go, rebuild My Church." We are reminded of Saint Francis' fervent love for Jesus in return. As the candle is used up by the flame, so Saint Francis was used up by the flame of Christ's love in his heart. May this candle remind us that Jesus desires to make us also His instruments of peace, as was Saint Francis. It is ever true today as always, that Christ has no other hands, but yours.
