Jesus, the light of the world (Jn 8:12) tells us, his present day disciples, that we also are the light of the world.  This can be so only if we reflect the light of Jesus and that requires coming sufficiently close to him the source of all light.

As we ponder and take to heart today’s readings, let us resolve to share our knowledge and love and experience of Jesus with those we encounter.

Pope Francis writes:  ‘We become fully human when we become more than human, when we let God bring us beyond ourselves in order to attain the fullest truth of our being.  Here we find the source and inspiration of all our efforts at evangelization.  For if we have received the love which restores meaning to our lives, how can we fail to share that love with others?’ (Evangelii Gaudium, St Pauls, pg 8 para 8.)
