Do you see it? A tiny flame of light shining through the window. Even though it flickers, its light is clear and sure. Night is no longer an obscure curtain over all things.
This single taper pushes back the darkness on every side and holds it at bay. Your darkness, my darkness, and the darkness of the entire world are powerless to extinguish it.
Here within its glow, everything is illuminated. It promises you, weary traveler, welcome. It promises you, chilled passer-by, warmth. It promises us all hope. It reminds us of a star – the star – guiding us to the source of hope for all mankind: Jesus Christ.
