The Pascal Candle

The Pascal Candle at St Agatha’s, Portsmouth. In theory this should be burning all the time until it is snuffed out after the Holy Gospel on Ascension Day. Durham Cathedral had a candle that reached the high vault ! That was in med times of course.
Servers should light the various altar candles  ,when and where required, from the light of the Paschal Candle and not with a match or cigarette lighter.
