Share the Light

“Brothers and sisters,
You were once darkness but now you are light in the Lord.
Live as children of light,
For light produces every kind of goodness and righteousness and truth.
Try to learn what is pleasing to the Lord.
Take no part in the fruitless works of darkness;
Rather expose them, for it is shameful even to mention
The things done by them in secret;
But everything exposed by the light becomes visible,
For everything that becomes visible is light.
Therefore, it says:
“Awake, O sleeper,
And arise from the dead,
And Christ will give you light.”
Eph 5:8-14

“Let your light shine before men, that they may see your fine worlds and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”
Matthew 5:16

“No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick that they which come in may see light.
Luke 11:33

“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it give the light unto all that are in the house.”
Matthew 5:14-15

“Every family is always a light, no matter how faint it might be, amid the darkness of this world.”
Pope Francis (Homily at vigil celebration of the Synod of Bishops on the Family, St. Peter’s Square, October 2, 2016)
