In Light Of
By Sr. Nun Other
During our weekly Liturgy of the Hours, we encounter these words from Psalm 36: In Your light, we see light. It occurs to me that my light — in and of itself — is based on me. I transfuse advice with my experiences, my opinions, and unfortunately, my agenda. God’s light is a burst of life, clear and transparent, that transmits a spectrum of multifaceted color. When I’m tempted to speak too quickly, I need to focus through the prism of God’s love. In Your light, we see light. This one, wonderful sentence tucked in the middle of a Psalm, makes all the difference.
