A Great Light in the Darkness

Cycle AOrdinary TimeWeek 3

by Bishop Robert BarronJanuary 22, 2017


This week's reading from the prophet Isaiah emphasizes God's tendency to bring the best from the worst situations, light from the darkness. Throughout the Bible we see wonderful things come from the most unexpected places, and this is reflected in our own lives as well. Often our greatest goodness can come from the darkest places of our beings.
