The Paschal Candle represents the risen Christ, as a symbol of light (life) dispelling darkness (death).
The Paschal candle is the large, white candle used in liturgies in the Roman Catholic Church and other religious ceremonies.The Paschal Candle tradition has its origins in early church and it is believed that St. Ambrose made this candle prominent during the Easter season late in the third century.
The term "Paschal" comes from the word Pesach, which in Hebrew means Passover
