From today’s Psalm (Psalm 1:1-4,6):
‘Anyone who follows you, O Lord, will have the light of life’
This is a beautiful passage from today’s psalm, and so fitting that it should come on the feast of St Lucy, whose name means ‘light’!
Let us pray to St Lucy that, through her intercession, we will have the light of life; the true light of life in Christ who will lead us to eternal glory. And let us also pray that, through us, many others will also receive this light, especially in this time of evangelisation. We must not be afraid to show others the love of Christ both in our actions and our words. Using words is often put to one side and more importance placed on the need to live out our faith by action. But we must rely on the Word of God to bring people to Christ. This must never be forgotten.
