What better way to welcome in the beginning of Daylight Savings Time than to have a Lectio Divina session with one’s confreres, a session spent meditating on John’s Gospel 3:14-21. The word “Light” is used five times by the Gospel writer to show that God wants us to not live and dwell in darkness, but to thrive in the light and truth of Christ. Previously, I believed that my individual actions (works) could only reveal that light to others, but now I understand and see things in a whole new light (pun intended). Light can be revealed not only through the tangible Christ-like actions of feeding the poor, consoling those who grieve, and loving those who may be difficult to love, but also through the everyday “unseen” commitments made to Christ Jesus. For me, this is made manifest in my discernment as a Novice of this cannonry at Daylesford. The very fact that I’m working on dying to self and contemplating what the vows of chastity, poverty, and obedience look like in the years ahead, all reveal light in a most special way. The point and message of this blog post is to communicate to you that a forecast for cloudy skies does not mean that the Sun is refusing to shine…no, it may just mean that we could be looking at things from a lower altitude and not from the height(s) God sees us from.
