“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 36:5-9

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Lord, Your constant love reaches the heavens;

Your faithfulness extends to the skies.

Your righteousness is towering like the mountains;

Your justice is like the depths of the sea.

People and animals are in Your care.

.

How precious, O God, is Your constant love!

We find protection under the shadow of Your wings.

We feast on the abundant food You provide;

You let us drink from the river of Your goodness.

.

You are the source of all life,

and because of Your light we see the light.

.

– Psalm 36:5-9 (GNT)

REFLECTION…

.

Jesus said, “I am the light of the world.

Whoever follows me will have the light of life and will never walk in darkness.” (Jn 8:12)

Christ applies this image to Himself in two ways:

He is the light which enlightens our minds,

for He is the fullness of divine Revelation;

and He is also the light which enlightens our hearts

to enable us to accept this Revelation and live according to it.

.

Jesus asks us to follow Him and become sons of light,

however He knows that many of us will reject this light

because we do not want our evil deeds to be uncovered.

.

“There are two fundamental attitudes

that every man can adopt every time that a new day of work and human relations begins:

either to choose good or give way to evil.” – Pope Saint John Paul II

.

We should never stop asking the Lord to help us choose good over evil

and to always seek the light of God, the “source of all life”.

.

God is good.

He is a living fountain that quenches

and a light that illuminates the faithful.

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

“When we are thirsty, we look for a fountain;

when we are in darkness we look for light. […]

Not so with God: He is light and fountain.

He who shines for you to enable you to see,

flows for you to enable you to drink.”

.

– St. Augustine

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

O Lord, my God, remove from me all fascination of the darkness of evil

and grant that I will always seek Your face and be enveloped forever in the light of Your grace.

Amen.
