A cross open to the elements surmounts a starry, meteoric skyscape from which emerge the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet: alpha and omega. Christ is the beginning and the end of all creation, making his resurrection a truly blessed night. Nox Beata, or "Blessed Night", recalls an insight from the Exsultet: The night is blessed because it alone of all the nights has come to know the hour of the resurrection.
This candle will illuminate the entire community gathered on a blessed night to celebrate the most blessed night of all.
