At the Baptism area, Nigel (age 9) re-told the story of Jesus’ birth, death, and resurrection, and the spreading of His light, while lighting, extinguishing and re-lighting the paschal candle, and then lighting a small individual candle. He then told the catechist: “I came here one day by myself and prayed. I thanked God for creation because that’s the greatest gift of all.” Then, recalling the recent Advent prophecies, he added, “And for the little place too (Bethlehem).”

It doesn't matter how big the darkness is...

This is a conversation between two young boys, about the power of the Resurrection.

Xavier, 6: See that candle? (the Paschal Candle) It's Jesus and God. There's at least 50,000 darkness out here and only one light. And that light challenged the darkness and won.

Scott, 5: When Jesus was killed on the cross, his light got snuffed. But when he rose, it was like his light lit up a pile of firewood--and the light was MUCH stronger. Everyone was amazed!

Xavier: It doesn't matter how big the darkness is, it can't put out the light. But even one little candle can light up this dark room.
