We are beacons of the light of Christ when we learn from our problems and grow from our trials…..How bright is your light? Whose darkness is it illuminating?

We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.  - Plato: (423 – 347 BC: was an Athenian philosopher during the Classical period in Ancient Greece)

Gospel Text: (JN 12:44-50)
Jesus cried out and said,
“Whoever believes in me believes not only in me
but also in the one who sent me,
and whoever sees me sees the one who sent me.
I came into the world as light,
so that everyone who believes in me might not remain in darkness.
And if anyone hears my words and does not observe them,
I do not condemn him,
for I did not come to condemn the world but to save the world.
Whoever rejects me and does not accept my words
has something to judge him: the word that I spoke,
it will condemn him on the last day,
because I did not speak on my own,
but the Father who sent me commanded me what to say and speak.
And I know that his commandment is eternal life.
So what I say, I say as the Father told me.”

The beauty of our faith and our role as people of God is the reality that all we have to do is believe and ask our savior to show us the way and that twinkling light, that beacon will find us and bring us to safe harbors.
