“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – John 6:68




“Lord, to whom can we go?

You have the words of eternal life.”


– John 6:68 (NRSV)






Lord, to whom can we go?

You have the words of eternal life.

To whom can we go indeed –

our life does not make sense if we are not following our Lord closely!


Anyone who follows You, Lord, will have the light of life.

Such a person is like a tree that is planted beside the flowing waters,

that yields its fruit in due season,

and whose leaves never fade. (Resp. Psalm, Ps 1:1-4)


Our successes and gains that boost our ego,

any human happiness that goes to make up our earthly treasure,

all is worthless compared to Christ’s eternal promise.


Truly we can say to Our Lord in our own personal prayer:

Stay with us, because our souls are full of darkness and You are the one true light;

You alone can satisfy the longings that consume us.

For we know that above everything that is beautiful and good, the greatest is this:

to possess You forever, O Lord.” (St. Gregory Nazianzen)






Come Lord Jesus, fill me with the fire of Your love

and remove all that is pointless in my life; all that leads me away from You.
