Meditating Christ the Light of my life

cross1Christ the light of  my life

Christian experience of the Risen Lord leads to the recognition of the splendour of the Light of Christ that illumines everthing in the world. This meditation is one of visualization and awareness of Jesus Light in oneself. It may look to you at first that these meditations are self absorbing and are not directly taking you to missionary action. The fruits of thes meditations are seen in the joy that you discover in you which flows naturally out to others in your community and ministry. You do not have to force light into anything. Lightt spreads naturally outwards and illumines everything. “You are the light of the World… Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and give glory too your Father who is in heaven” (Mt 5.14,16).
