Reflection — January 9th
In this well loved passage John is talking about Jesus being the light of the world. That light, he says as his Gospel goes on, is not just to shine at the beginning of the world or to only those who met him on earth and heard the witness of his coming, but to all, in whatever dark place we find ourselves. The people Jesus knew on earth were indeed in a dark place, a place of subjugation under a power they had not chosen. Jesus came to help them see the light and to in turn reflect that light to others.
Light reflects over and over until it shows us things we could never have otherwise seen.
