FRIDAY 31st DECEMBER 2021
John 1, 1-18:
“In the Word there was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not receive it. The Word was the true light, which enlightens every person”.
Today is the last day of the year.
A day in which thousands of things are intermingled: memories of loved ones, events that have taken place and been celebrated, failures and pandemics that we did not expect, doubts, questions, adversities, moments of joy and happiness….
May the light that is the Word help you today to express two feelings:
* The first, of profound thanksgiving to God. Thank you for so many gifts and so many gifts received: people in your path, family members who love you, friends who accompany you, circumstances and moments that have helped you to grow and mature as a person of faith…
* The second is one of forgiveness for what you have not done and for what you have not done well. Put it also into the Lord’s hands with peace and serenity. He, who overcomes darkness and enlightens every person, will enlighten you throughout the coming year so that you may continue to grow in following him and in his love.
Happy last day of 2021 and happy beginning of 2022.
