4th Sunday of Lent Light. At our most basic level of awareness, at the core of our being, we know the power of light. Physically we seek it, are energized and refreshed by it, drawn to its warmth, its nourishment, its luminous beauty. Our strong connections to light mean its properties have emotional and spiritual resonance. Vision, insight and revelation can become interconnected. Spiritually, light is associated with the life itself with transformation and hope. “Let there be light!” is the first command of the Creator God of Genesis. “I am the light of the world,” declares Jesus, God’s fullest self-revelation in time as he brings vision – light to darkness- to a blind man. Through Jesus’ resurrection we are similarly transformed in Christ, says St. Paul to the church of Ephesus – so live “as children of the light.” Here we are, people and Church, making our annual Lenten pilgrimage. Active disciples, the body of Christ in our time and place, we seek renewal in living Jesus’ mission of love. Today’s readings illumine our path in their use of light imagery to define discipleship. Our invitation? Reflect the light of Christ! We are called to transformation, individually and as Church… where the light of compassion can transform relationships, alleviate the darkness of systemic injustice and reveal the holiness of all that is.
