Jesus teaches that one does not light a lamp and then cover it; rather, it is put on a stand so that all might see. May we uncover the gifts we have received and shine with Christ’s light in the world!
The light of the star guided the sight of the wise men to the infant Jesus. God’s light continues to shine in our world today through Prayer, Scripture, Sacraments, and Fellowship. May we not only use our sight to recognize the Lord’s presence, but may we also shine with the light of faith to help others draw near to Christ.
