There is a light in this world,

“There is a light in this world, a healing spirit
more powerful than any darkness we may encounter.
We sometimes lose sight of this force when there is suffering, too much pain.
Then suddenly, the spirit will emerge through the lives of ordinary people
who hear a call and answer in extraordinary ways.”

― Mother Teresa

Sunday reflections . . . I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.

THE WAY, THE TRUTH, THE LIFE
Three words quite familiar to  Christians, regardless of religious organization or sect they belong to. For, in listening to these words, they instantly remind Christians of the known sentences of Jesus, recorded in the Gospel of John:

“I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (Jo14:6)

And then they keep in their hearts the most immediate interpretation of those words, which is that only the followers of Christianity will be able to reach Heaven.
And, naturally, that the members of their own Christian institution are the ones who will reach it more safely.
Such is a thought not much different from the one cherished by the Pharisees at the time of Jesus…

However, these meaningful words of the Son of God are much deeper than they seem at first sight…….”

“Our hands imbibe like roots,
so I place them on what is beautiful in this world.
And I fold them in prayer and they draw from the heavens light”

~ Francis of Assisi

This faith transforms . . .

“This faith transforms the whirlwind of despair
into a warm and reviving breeze of hope.
The words of a motto which a generation ago
were commonly found on the wall in the homes
of devout persons need to be etched on our hearts:

Fear knocked at the door.
Faith answered.
There was no one there.”

~Martin Luther King Jr.,
