According to the Orthodox Christian tradition, the vigil lamp is placed on the iconostasis of the home in front of the holy icons and is lit on a daily basis. It symbolizes the light of Jesus Christ that illuminates every believer and lighting it with olive oil is an act of honour and respect to God and the Saints of the Orthodox Church. When we light the candle we pray as follows: «Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven».
