John of the Cross: the Light

Friday, December 14, 2018
    Feast of John of the Cross, Mystic, Poet, Teacher, 1591
    The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world.
    —John 1:9 (NIV)
Never was fount so clear, undimm’d and bright;
From it alone, I know, proceeds all light
    Although ’tis night.
    ... St. John of the Cross (1542-1591), The Complete Works of Saint John of the Cross, v. II, Burns, Oates & Washbourne, 1935, p. 454 (see the book)
    See also John 1:7-9; Isa. 9:2; John 8:12; 9:4-5; 2 Cor. 4:4,6
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are my light.
