What is the depiction of Sacred Heart of Jesus on this 8" Catholic devotional candle?
Our resurrected Lord appears in the clouds, his face aglow with joy, triumph, and profound peace. His raised palms are marked with the stigmata. He wears a red mantle over his white robe to symbolize his divinity clothed in humanity. He brings to us the symbol of his own Sacred Heart pierced by thorns, ablaze with love, emanating light. The cross stands on top of the heart.
The flame atop the Sacred Heart reminds us of Jesus' eternal love which burns for us and inspires us to love each other as His beloveds with the same unquenchable devotion. It also reminds us of his sacrificial offering as he gave up his own life for our sake.
The rays of light that the Sacred Heart emits remind us that Jesus, as the light of the world, is the source of our enlightenment. He teaches us how to truly see.The crown of thorns reminds us that our Savior's anguish on the cross was not only physical, but his very heart was also opened and broken for us. The cross, standing on top of the heart as if planted there, likewise illustrates that the crucifixion was as much an event of the heart as it was a physical act.
