On Darkness and Light

Speaking with some friends yesterday, I mentioned that the reason people either hate us or become testy around us is that when we either go to work, or even to family gatherings, we are like light bulbs walking into a dark room.

The darkness of souls sees the lightness in us and either recoils, or attacks.

We should expect this, and be loving and kind and, most importantly, detached.

It is not US that these people in darkness are attacking or recoiling from, but CHRIST in us.

In fact, we have within us from baptism, the Indwelling of the Holy Trinity.

Can you imagine a soul in the darkness of sin and death, (a soul in mortal sin is a dead soul), facing the light that soul has decided not to follow? And, Dear Reader, there you stand, enlightened by the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

The Light is the Light of Christ's salvation and grace, which too many in Darkness now hate, as these people have chosen the Darkness.

No more do they desire the Light, but either fear it, or hate it, or both. Some, therefore, want to destroy the Light, as it shows them their very souls.

Pray for those people.

Pray that they are open to the Light.
