In the Catholic Faith, candles not only represent “the True Light Which enlightens every man who comes into the world" but much more besides! Discover the rich symbolism and ancient history surrounding the use of church candles in this fascinating, illustrated book. Educate yourself about the rules and practices concerning candles in the Roman Liturgy through chapters that cover Masses offered by a priest or bishop, a sick call, the Divine Office and even when administering the other Sacraments or for other solemn occasions.Last published in 1937 and written by noted American professor of liturgy, Fr. Edwin Ryan, this easy-to-read and magazine format book (11 x 8.5 in) was originally intended as an advertising medium for the now defunct Gross Candle Co. This also unique and interesting for its wonderful illustrations, which were created especially for this book by artists, Terence J. Hughes and James R. Howard. The illustrations are a combination of vivid watercolors and striking black and white line drawings of altars decorated with candles according to rules of the Roman Church.The illustrations are even more interesting for showing properly constructed altars decorated with a full array of flowers (in the Roman fashion), antependiums, conopaeums, pavement candles, candelabra, and even riddel post curtains and candles. Candles in the Roman Rite is perfect for any Catholic who desires to learn more about the liturgy. Fully indexed and includes a table of contents, this book is especially appropriate for sacristans, altar servers, church artisans, ladies’ altar guilds and parish florists. Also a great reference for seminaries, catechism classes, and Catholic libraries. 11 x 8.5 inches.
