Name that stick! Caption Contest-Poll
When I took liturgy class at Eden we had an unbelievably long vocabulary test. It seems that there is not one item in the church without a cool liturgical name. We had to know the difference between a cassock and an alb, an altar and a prie dieu, a narthex and a chanc…. you get the idea.
So I asked our teacher what these are called:
I’ve never gotten a satisfactory answer. Cokesbury calls them “candlelighters.” That seems too straightforward and blah for a cool liturgical item.
Let’s name it, shall we?
