Be still and allow the Light that sustains you to shine.

Isaiah 42:6-7

I have grasped you by the hand; I formed you, and set you as a covenant for the people, a light for the nations, to open the eyes of the blind, to bring out prisoners from confinement, and from the dungeon, those who live in darkness.

Jesus took these words of the Prophet Isaiah to heart.

They resonated in his soul.

Jesus became them.

He gave life to them.

Theologian and spiritual teacher, Beverly Lanzetta, writes in her book Path of the Heart:

Our mission is to articulate and to celebrate the coming of divinity into form. We, as humans, are a microcosm of the macrocosm of the absolute. Within each being is a particular spectrum of the absolute, and thus each person is a unique expression of the sacred on earth.” “We are the co-architects of sacred words. Each one of us is a unique configuration of sacred letters and each one of us, in thought, word, and deed, births them into form(page 166).

As Jesus articulated and celebrated the coming of divinity into form, we too must do so.

You and I also must be a “unique expression of the sacred on earth.”

And if we identify as Christian, we must also be a light to the world, open the eyes of the blind, bring out prisoners from confinement, and those who live in darkness.

May each of us be a light to the other so that in these dark times the Light is shining on us all.
