Even in the darkness of a November night, there was incredible warmth and light.ย 💗


As we journey into the darkest time of the year, it is increasingly important for each of us to kindle warmth and light in our hearts. Martinโ€™s cloak can remind us to share with those in need. And the gently glowing lanterns of Martinmas show how our inner light must shine ever brighter against the cold.

As the sun sets earlier and the world grows darker, this tradition of making and carrying lanterns into the dark evening symbolizes that the inner light of humankind wants to shine forth.

โ€œEach of us is one small light, but together we shine brightโ€
