  Let us Pray ...
Heavenly Father, thank you for allowing us into your presence. When we think of all that you have done, the incredible universe you have made and hold together by your word, we are amazed you invite us into your presence. We are amazed that you even care about our choice of words. Thank you for knowing us and having a plan for our life. Help us to live each day with humility and grace before others as we seek to glorify you in all things. Through Infant Jesus we pray. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Mark 4:21-25)
Light illumines the darkness and make possible one to see visually, so the light of Christ shines in the hearts of believers and allow us to see the heavenly truth of God's kingdom. In fact, our task is to be light-bearers of Christ so that others may observe the truth of the gospel and be unchained from the blindness of sin and dishonesty. What do the image of lamp and a light tell us about God's kingdom? Lamps in the very old world served a very important function, much like they do today. They enable people to observe and work in the dark and to keep away from stumbling. The Jews also understood "light" as an appearance of the inner beauty, truth, and goodness of God. In his light we notice light. His word is a lamp that show our steps. God's grace not only lights the darkness in our lives, but it also fills us with spiritual light, joy, and peace. Jesus used the image of a lamp to explain how his disciples are to live in the light of his facts and love. Jesus remarks that nothing can stay hidden or secret. We can try to conceal things from others, from ourselves, and from God. How tempting to close our eyes from the result of our sinful ways and dreadful habits, even when we be acquainted with what those consequences are. And how tempting to hide them as of others and even from God. But, nonetheless, everything is known to God who sees all. There is great liberty and joy for those who live in God's light and who seek this fact. Those who take note to God and pay attention to his voice will be given more from him. Do you know the joy and liberty of living in God's light?
