St. Lucy is depicted in a white gown, crowned with glowing candles and bearing sweets and coffee or mulled wine. Treat yourself to something sweet and make a votive offering. The simple act of lighting a candle can be a profound spiritual expression when accompanied with sincere intent. Most of us light candles so often that it has become routine. But this time, be mindful of what light gives us, what your candle stands for. Recall how it must have felt to discover fire. Imagine how awe-inspiring it must have been to behold something so powerful and mysterious long ago. Candles have been part of spiritual traditions for centuries; votive actually means "offering." Tonight, light a candle for something meaningful to you. If you make candles, pour a special one for today.
