Paschal Candle

The 2010 Paschal candle in a darkened St. Michael's Cathedral.

This Paschal candle features the Sacred Heart at the centre of a rather understated cross, the current year (since Christ is with us now), the Alpha and Omega in the upper golden band (since He shall ever be) and the Paschal Lamb in the lower golden band.  Five grains of incense, representing the 5 wounds of Christ, are pressed into the candle with the white nails.
