THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
Last Week we were introduced to John the Baptist as part of our
Advent journey. We hear his story again today, and in this account, from
the fourth gospel, we hear Johns voice and his testimony about Jesus.
Light and darkness is a key theme of the fourth gospel and its opening
verses proclaims that this light has always shone in the dark; the
darkness cannot overpower it. The evangelist goes on to tell us that
John the Baptists mission is that he has been sent to God to ‘speak for
the light’. John is a light bearer, he is not the light, but he points
to the light. He is a witness to the light of God in our world, a light
that cannot be put out.
We celebrate this light today on Gaudete Sunday. Gaudete means
‘rejoice’; we light the pink candle and we celebrate with joy. It might
be a good opportunity to ask today: ‘who have been the light-bearers on
your own faith journey? Who testified to the Light of God and passed the
torch on to you? We thank God for them.
