Beeswax Candles are unlike any other candles, burning beeswax puts a person in a special mood of reverence.
The earlier fathers of the Church endeavored always to seek out the mystical significance of Christian practices, and one of them thus explains the reason for the Church’s law requiring candles to be of beeswax: “The wax, being spotless, represents Christ’s most spotless Body; the wick enclosed in it is an image of His Soul, while the glowing flame typifies the Divine Nature united with the human in one Divine Person.” Others say that the blessing of candles on the day of the Presentation was suggested by the words of Simeon, who spoke of Our Lord as “the light to the revelation of the Gentiles, and the glory of Thy people Israel.” (Lu. 2, 32).
“Yet a little while, the light is among you. Walk whilst you have the light, that the darkness overtake you not. And he that walketh in darkness, knoweth not whither he goeth. Whilst you have the light, believe in the light, that you may be the children of light..” [From John 12:35-36]
