Shabbat Candles, Peace and Purity

In the Mishnah, R' Yehudah says that if a metzorah (one who suffers from Biblical leprosy) enters someone's home uninvited, the home becomes defiled within the amount of time it takes to light the Shabbat candles. What is the deeper, spiritual meaning of this law and how does it help us understand the tremendous power of the Shabbat candles? (Based in Likkutei Sichos, vol. 17, pp. 141)

I hope dear Rabbi Moshe New that one day you experience the utter joy and lightness in your heart that some of us feel when listening to your shiurim, this one in particular. Is it possible to feel cleansed, filled with light? Maybe it's just the joy of learning, but you remain an exemplary teacher of the essentials of our being Jews. Sending love and good wishes to you and all those who love and care for you. Reply
