To see is opening oneself to light; light that enables us to see. Without it you can’t see. That’s why the blind men who approach Jesus saying “have mercy on us” acknowledge somehow the darkness in which they find themselves. They need light. And you, by which light do you see yourself, others around you and the world you live in?
Jesus is the light of the world, the light that enables us to see who we are, as well as who the others are. It’s in this light of Christ we come to appreciate own dignity and that of others.
Readings Isaiah 29 : 17–24 Psalm 27 : 1, 4, 13–14 Matthew 9 : 27–31
Sometimes we lack a clear sight of who we are, and we equally fail to see others through the light of Christ. At Christmas we read about a people that walked in darkness that finally comes to see light. Indeed, it’s Christ our light who comes to illumine our lives.
May the Christmas mystery, for which we are preparing this time of Advent, be an encounter with Christ, our Light, who dissipates whatever darkness in our lives so that a new day may dawn.
