Thanks , Thomas. A follow up: Do people still hold that baptismal candles for three weeks following . . . anywhere? (I was received through chrismation, but still held a candle!)
I was hoping to be newly illumined for a year after chrismation, as in a newlywed. I figure I need to complete an entire church cycle to lose the "newly."
Welcome home! Newly Illumined hold a candle in Russian churches and their godparent(s) are supposed to go with them through the communion line during this time.
