After a month of waiting and preparation, we are finally ready to light the last and final candle- the Christ candle. Through the birth of the Christ child, Jesus, God the Father has given the best and ultimate gift, the gift of His Son. He is the one who made all things and all things hold together by the word of His power. As the classic carol, "Away in a Manger" declares, He is the "Little Lord Jesus"- small but yet Lord. And He has come so that in everything He might be preeminent.
