“You are clothed with majesty and glory, robed in light as with a cloak.” – Psalm 104: 2a
The theme of light runs throughout today’s readings. In the first reading, God brings light to the world and “God saw how good the light was” (Gn 1: 3). What is so great about light? Well lets think about what light does. Light makes things visible, clear, and more apparent. Light brings clarity and makes things more evident unlike darkness, which obscures. God himself is light in the sense that he makes clear how we are to live our lives by shedding his luminous grace and love on us. Jesus is the greatest example of God’s light in that he showed us how to live and serve God by the example of his own life. Jesus makes it clear and visible that we are to love and serve our neighbors in the Gospel when he heals all those who come to him.
We are called to be a part of God’s light by living the lives he calls us to and loving those around us as he loves us. When we do this, we reveal God to others and remove darkness from their lives, so they can see more clearly.
