9 – The role of light in the liturgy

9. From the Book of Exodus

Fancy letter Command the Israelites to bring you clear oil of pressed olives for the light so that the lamps may be kept burning. In the Tent of Meeting, outside the curtain that shields the ark of the covenant law, Aaron and his sons are to keep the lamps burning before the Lord from evening till morning. This is to be a lasting ordinance among the Israelites for the generations to come.

Ex 27, 20-21


9. The role of light in the liturgy


God the Father: In front of the curtain shielding the Holy Place, I ordered to light a lamp, whose light will never go out.

I bless you in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
