Peace Light From Bethlehem

December 20, 2014; 5:00 pm;

img_9671The first Clare Scout Troop from Shannon will welcome the Peace Light from Bethlehem to the Adoration Chapel on Saturday 20th December at 5pm in a short ceremony with carols being sung as the Light from Bethlehem travels to Shannon to be spread among us.

In the Grotto of the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem there is an oil lamp that has been burning continuously for centuries. This is the Peacelight flame. All the Christian nations in the world take turns contributing oil for this lamp.

The Peacelight of Bethlehem movement started in Austria in 1986. In that year, the Austrian radio and television corporation, ORF and Austrian Airlines, sponsored a trip to Bethlehem to light the first Peacelight lantern from the eternal flame burning in the Grotto. The flame was flown back to Austria and with the help of the Austrian Scouts from where it is distributed at a Service of Dedication to delegations from across Europe who take it back, with a message of Peace, to their own countries for use at ecumenical services throughout the Continent. Scouts and Guides can then take the light on to other churches, hospitals, old people homes, prisons, and places of public, cultural and political importance – to anybody that appreciates the significance of the “gift”.
