When the artist asked what to design, the other carvers said "let's see...Alpha and Omega, the year, and a great big cross...also we were thinking about, like, Eucharistic imagery." As you can see, the design was taken to AMAZING heights. The words on the candle say, "Lamb of God . . . grant us peace."
