About Today Readings

Acts 12:24 – 13:5. Psalm 66(67):2-3, 5-6, 8. John 12:44-50.

O God, let all the nations praise you! – Psalm 66(67):2-3, 5-6, 8. 

‘I have come as light into the world.’

This theme automatically invites rejoicing and praise. When we experience the warmth and comfort of light and allow ourselves to luxuriate in its radiance, we are transformed, inwardly as well as physically. The disciples experienced the transformation. They rejoiced in Christ’s light, and in their excitement they told others. It was not simply excitement, but such a deeply profound experience of the light and its implications for everyone, that they were compelled to share it. Jesus had told them to, he had shared that light, had taught them to, and now they were embracing that calling because they understood what it meant to live in the light. Do we experience our faith in this way? Are we being inwardly transformed? Are we so deeply moved that we have to share it? Does the depth of Easter truly live in our hearts and lives?
