Pt. 2 The light that is shining within...

As we approach Christmas, the nights grow longer and the darkness seems powerful. But the message given to Mary in the Christmas story, is a message that is also given to us: God’s love for us reveals the light shining within us. Even as we reach the longest night of the year, and we face the darkest times, the light of Christ can shine within us and overcome the darkness.

To love someone is to reveal to them their capacities for life, the light that is shining within them.
