Hare: the light of Christ

Tuesday, November 30, 2021
    Feast of Andrew the Apostle
    Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people; A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.
    —Luke 2:29-32 (KJV)
    In darkness there is no choice. It is light that enables us to see the differences between things; and it is Christ who gives us light.
    ... Augustus William Hare (1792-1834) & Julius Charles Hare (1795-1855), Guesses at Truth, by Two Brothers, second series, London: Taylor and Walton, 1848, p. 209 (see the book)
    See also Luke 2:29-32; Mal. 4:2; John 1:4-9; Eph. 5:13-14
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are the light.
