Blessing of New Fire

Resource Toolbox

A ceremony of Holy Saturday. It takes place at the door of the church, probably because in ancient times it was necessary to use flint and tinder, producing smoke, or because a burning-glass was used. The new fire is carried to the altar in a procession, and the branches of a triple candle are lighted from it, and later the paschal candle.
