Vigil Lamp
« on: March 17, 2011, 02:33:04 AM »
Glory to Jesus Christ!

In my Parish during great lent we burn a vigil lamp before the tabernacle containing the lamb for the presanctifed but we don't burn one in front of the tabernacle for the rest of the year is anyone else Familiar with this tradition? should there be a lamp burning in front of the tabernacle all the time?

In Christ,
Seraphim
All my hope I place in you, O Mother of God, keep me under your protection!

It is quite common for there to always be one.
