triple candlestick


Quick Reference

In the W. rite until 1955 a triple candlestick was used in the Paschal Vigil Service to hold the three candles which were lit during the procession to the altar. In the E. Church a triple candlestick (and a double candlestick) are used for episcopal blessings at the Liturgy, the bishop holding one in each hand.
