the light shines in the darkness

and the darkness did not overcome it

My hope and prayer is that we,

as faltering followers and friends of Jesus,

will continue seeking to dwell in him

– just as he seeks to dwell in us.

This seeking will challenge each of us to open ourselves

to the pain of humanity

and to become friends with those who are weak, broken, rejected

and in need.

Together, I pray, we may rise up

in the new life promised to us all

where we will know God.

– Jean Vanier Drawn into the Mystery of Jesus through the Gospel of John
