Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Christ our Light Thanks be to God Acts 5:17-26; John 3:16-21
* The Paschal Candle
* The Easter Candle
* The Christ Candle
The above are three names for the Candle seen in the Sanctuary throughout the fifty days of the Easter Season. During this Easter Season, Jesus is presented as the transformative light.
Divine Revelation emphasizes that God did not send Jesus to condemn the world but to save it.
All our human tendencies since the Fall have been predominantly selfish – this is darkness.
But Christ the Light of the World turns our efforts into virtuous acts.
Our human eyes cannot see very well without daylight; our eyeglasses do not do much good without sufficient light. In fact, good lighting is more helpful for reading than a magnifying glass.
The Light of Christ is the glow of daylight
which lights the path of our hearts – and
shows followers to the right way of living.
This is the time to have hope because of the Light of Christ.
The Lord’s Resurrection has become our Light.
We now have the true light and the right direction to live lives.
Sincerely in the Lord,
Father Richard York, your Pastor
