From today’s Gospel, from St John: ‘I have come as light into the world, that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness’.

The poet T S Eliot wrote, in Choruses from the Rock: ‘We thank Thee for the light that we have kindled, / The light of altar and of sanctuary; / Small lights of those who meditate at midnight / And lights directed through the coloured panes of windows / And light reflected from the polished stone, / The gilded carven wood, the coloured fresco. / Our gaze is submarine, our eyes look upward / And see the light that fractures through unquiet water. /
We see the light but see not whence it comes. / O Light Invisible, we glorify Thee!’

In these days of Easter, let us turn to the Light, the Light that enlightens every man; and may God bless you this day, in so doing.
