Psalms: 18:21-50
Gospel: Matt 7:1-12
Patristic Reading: An excerpt from the Moral Reflections on Job by St. Gregory the Great

It is you who light my lamp;
the Lord, my God, lights up my darkness. (Psalm 18:28)

OK am I the only one who thought of this when reading this verse 28????


Seriously though, this line is the one that caught my attention tonight. God is the one who gives light to guide our feet on the path….but where does this path lead to???

Ironically enough, it leads us back to Him who is the source of life….

For with you is the fountain of life;
in your light we see light. (Psalm 36:9)

Light is an important part of our allows us not only to see…..but to see in colour and detail. It can be a spot of joy on otherwise dreary, snowy, and overcast days that are otherwise miserable… :P…..Can you tell I’m looking forward to spring???

Light can also give us direction in the darkness… times when we are uncertain and lost…..its appearance can give hope admist despair.

May you always find yourself in the light, and remember that in light, we reflect the one who made us in delight +
