I think a lot about light, maybe more during the Christmas season when there is less of it than at other times of the year.
My friend Father Paul frequently quotes words from Stephen Schwartz’s Godspell lyrics
But the tallest candlestick
Ain’t much good without a wick
You’ve got to stay bright to be the light of the world
We all have the ability to shine and to ‘be bright’ to someone. Don’t let your opportunities pass.
Something to ponder…
Where does the light go when the candle is blown out?
John O’Donohue from Anam Cara
