Who is more foolish, the child afraid of the dark or the person afraid of the light?
(Maurice Freehill)

We are invited this week to reflect on the place of light in our lives. The light that at times we welcome but at other times fear. Yet why should that be? Is it because there are things we do that we do not feel comfortable about?

Father, You call us Your children to walk in the light of Christ
Your son, who brought light into the world.
Set us free from the darkness that spoils our lives’
keep us in the light of truth and honesty,
in ourselves and what we do.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Please remember in your prayers :
Those who have died recently, the homeless and socially isolated, those who find it hard to forgive.
