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

It is quite common for there to always be one.
