We celebrate Christmas, we celebrate the sending of His Son into the world by God, when the days are shortest and dark-est. It is written in the Gospel of St John: “In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it” (J 1. 4-5). In the middle of wintertime, God sends His Son to us to give us light, to give us hope and to show us the way to Salvation.
It may often seem that we are surrounded by darkness in the world, in our own town and also inside ourselves – both when it comes to the temptation to do evil and the darkness by which we seem to be surrounded in our suffering.
