Today, we have the joy of hearing again the Prologue of St John in the Mass as our Gospel reading.

‘In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God; all things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it’.

‘God is light, and in Him there is no darkness at all’ – so wrote St John in his Epistle. In these days when darkness seems to shadow the whole earth, let us turn inward to our Lord, the Source of all good, and of light. He sees all, and will heal all, in His own way and time.

May we trust Him utterly, and may God bless you this day.
