The Darkness Did Not (Cannot!) Overcome It

Date: December 16, 2012Liturgical Day: The Third Sunday of Advent (Year C)

a sad, broken world in the darkness: a candle Jesus Christ, the Light

Summary: Our hearts are broken, and it needs to be said: (1) this was not God's will; (2) God was and continues to be present in the midst of this horrible pain; and (3) there is something we can do: love and cherish our children, pray for those who have been so cruelly harmed, and know that we have to do something about the violence that is present in our culture. The light of Christ does shine in the darkness of this world. May it transform us, and through us, may it transform this broken world.
