Why are the candles in tfu Advent wreath dffirent eolors? And *ny a, some wreaths hauefiue candles ond sowi hauefour?

Most Advent wreaths have three purple candles and one rose to echo the liturgical colors of the Church's Advent celebrations.

Whether the wreath is being used at home or in a church, the lighting of the candles should follow the liturgical colors of the Sundays of Advent. The vestments at Mass are purple during the first two weeks of Advent, and we light a purple candle on the first and second Sundays ofAdvent. On the third Sunday, the Church celebrates Caudett Sunday or Rejoice Sund-ay, named after the first word of the day's traditional entrance verse (Philippians 4:4-5). The priest wears rose vestments at Mass as a sign of our brightening hope and joy, and on the Advent wreath we light the rose candle to reflect the action in the liturgyThe fourth Sunday of Advent sees the lighting of the last

They light this at Christmas, again echoing the Church's liturgical color for the season and rejoicing in Christ our Lord, whose birth brings light and life to our world.
