The Four Candles

The four candles burn slowly
The ambiance was so soft you could hear them talking.

THE FIRST ONE SAID :
“I AM PEACE!! However, nobody can keep me lit.
I believe I will go out.”

It’s flame rapidly diminishes and goes out completely.

THE SECOND ONE SAID :
“I AM FAITH!! Most of all, I am no longer indispensable,
So it doesn’t make any sense that I stay lit any longer.”

When it finished talking, a breeze softly blew on it
putting it out.

SADLY, THE THIRD CANDLE SPOKE IN ITS TURN :
“I AM LOVE!!! I haven’t got the strength to stay lit.

People put me aside and don’t understand
my importance
They even forget to love those who are nearest to them .”

And waiting no longer it goes out.

SUDDENLY…
A child enters the room and sees three candles
not burning.

“Why are you not burning?
You are supposed to stay lit till the end.”

Saying this, the child begins to cry.

THEN THE FOURTH CANDLE SAID :
“Don’t be afraid,
while I am still burning
we can re-light the other candles, I AM HOPE !”

With shining eyes, the child took the candle of
hope and lit the other candles.

The flame of Hope should never go out from our life …
and that each of us can maintain, Faith, Peace and Love!!!
