Candles (Lambathes)

Candles for wedding and baptism ceremonies are called lambathes in Greek. The candles/lambathes are lit at the beginning of the service to burn throughout the service.

St. Sophronius, Patriarch of Jerusalem, wrote in the 7th Century: "Lambathes and candles represent the Eternal Light, and also the light which shines from the righteous.

The candle is also a symbol of our burning and grateful love for God. Thus candles and lambathes are lit at all Church services, all with a wide variety of spiritual and symbolic meanings; for it is God Who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," [and] Who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ (1 Cor. 4:6).
