Even though I walk in the dark valley I fear no evil; for you are at my side. — Psalm 23:3
Mass Readings: Deuteronomy 13:1-9,15-17,19-30,33-62/John 8:12-20
In the year 351 a bishop named Cyril wrote a letter to Emperor Constantius describing a miracle that had occurred over the city of Jerusalem. At nine in the morning an enormous cross of light appeared in the sky. It extended from Golgotha to the Mount of Olives, and was seen by everyone in the city. Many believed the miracle was a sign against the Arians (including Constantius), who had begun to question the divinity of Christ.
With his bold letter, St. Cyril not only gave testimony to a miracle, but exalted the name of Jesus, Who said in today’s Gospel: “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” May we, like St. Cyril, ever be witnesses to the light of Christ.
Prayer: St. Cyril, guide me today as I carry the light of Christ to the world.
