Light of the Gospel

"The light the world gives us is an artificial light. It may be strong, stronger than that of Jesus . . . strong like a firework, like a photoflash. By contrast, the light of Jesus is a mild light; it is a quiet light, a light of peace. It is like the light of Christmas Eve: unpretentious. That is how it is; it offers itself and gives peace. . . . It is a mild light, with the strength of gentleness; it is a light that speaks to the heart and a light that also offers the cross." Pope Francis.
