It takes so little light to dispel darkness. A simple candle, a small flashlight, or even the moon can give enough light to guide the way in the darkest of places. Without it, we can wander aimlessly, unable to tell what is safe and what is not.
St. Theresa of Calcutta, or Mother Theresa, was given a call that spoke volumes to her and should speak volumes to us.
Jesus told her, “Come be My light. I cannot go alone. They don’t know Me, so they don’t want Me. You come. Go amongst them, carry Me with you into them. How I long to enter their holes, their dark unhappy homes… In your love for Me, they will see Me, know Me, want Me.”
In this time of anger, frustrations, protests, and fear, we can bring light. We must bring light. We must bring the love of God, so that this love can be spread. This is personal. This is intimate. And each of us has the power to do it. It doesn’t have to be much, it just has to be so.
Go. Be His light.
Let’s change the world.
