This light is a long-burning candle placed within the sanctuary. At Grace it is a clear white candle which hangs from the ceiling, to the side of the altar. The light, when burning, signifies that Jesus is present in the tabernacle. This signals those faithful who genuflect that the tabernacle is occupied, so that they may offer devotion.

In some churches the light may be red, and some churches use an electric candle.
