A purple candle is usually a sign of mourning, of sadness.
People like me who also line up the streets do not only want to watch this solemn ritual but also to contemplate about life and the world around us. Just like you, I also have my own problems to solve and devils to fight but there´s one thing no one can never take away from me. My faith in God, in love and in finding peace within ourselves.
Blue signifies peace and as cliché as it may sounds, what we need is world peace and so I´m lighting some.
Have a blessed Holy Week everyone and don´t forget to pray! :)
PS. I´m on a Lenten break. While you´re reading this, I´m on a road trip somewhere in Portugal visiting castles and churches. That is, if we don´t get lost along the way. ;) Will be visiting your blogs soon!
