Let not the truth about ourselves
today be hidden by a false humility. Let us instead be thankful for
the gifts our Father gave us. Can we see in those with whom He shares
His glory any trace of sin and guilt? And can it be that we are not
among them, when He loves His Son forever and with perfect constancy, knowing he is as He created him?
"We thank You, Father, for the light that shines forever in us. And we honor it, because You share it with us. We are one, united in this light and one with You, at peace with all creation and ourselves."
