Sixth Sunday in Advent Candle Lighting at St. Nicholas ROC, Bethlehem, PA. - 12/24/17

On Sunday, December 24, the sixth candle of the Advent Season was lit by Elizabeth Hockman. The adult scriptural reading was done by Lori Lezinsky. The sixth candle is red to signify Holy Communion. It reminds us that Christ, Who came to Bethlehem and Who will come again at the end of time, comes to us now in the great Sacrament of His Presence, i.e., Holy Communion. The reason He was born in Bethlehem was that we might allow Him to come and be born in the manger of our hearts.
