Thursday of the 3 week in ordinary time ‘b’ (memorial of St. Thomas Aquinas)
I am sure we all have experienced losing power in our homes when the electricity goes off. Among other things that we would lose access to would be lights, computers, garage doors, washing machines, etc. We can’t do much when it’s completely dark; we end up looking for a flashlight or a candle. These are very useful because we can once again see and make our way through our house. Companies today compete with each other in making better lights, better flashlights, better outdoor lights which would give us more and stronger light. We Christians are called to be those flashlights to the darkness of this world. And we should try all the techniques we can in order to be brighter, to last longer, to be more powerful and useful. We are to bring strong light to the world.
