“The true light that enlightens every man was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him. Yet the world knew Him not. But, to all who received Him, who believed in His Name, He gave power to become children of God” John 1:9,10,12
Today’s reading from John’s Gospel speaks of The Light coming into the world, and of The Light being in the world. This was the light from God – the light of reason, understanding, compassion and love , the light that shines through the deepest darkness. It is God’s great desire that our eyes be opened to see that light. The reading also speaks of The Forebearer, John The Baptist, who “came for testimony, to bear witness to the light, that all might believe through Him” (v. 7). Christ indeed is The True Light, the light that pierces through the darkness of men’s souls to educate them on the way to salvation.
Let us pray : Holy and Eternal God, we praise You for all You have created, for all the blessings You bring to us each day
Merciful One, help us to see the Light of Jesus clearly and brightly. Guide us to help others so that they can see it as well.
We pray all this in Your Blessed Son’s Name. Amen.
Yours in Christ , Rollie
