Light of Christ is quiet, humble, Pope says in homily
Catholic World News - September 03, 2013
In his homily at Mass on September 3, Pope Francis contrasted the light of Christ with the bright lights of the world.
Mankind, the Pope observed, is often seduced by bright lights, and seeks after the light that “makes you arrogant” or “brings you to look on others from on high.” The light that Jesus brings is “something other than the light of the world,” the Pope said. It is “a mild light, it is a quiet light, it is a light of peace.”
The Pope encouraged the faithful to pray for “the wisdom and discernment to understand when it is Jesus who gives us the light, and when it is the devil, disguised as an angel of light.” He suggested: “Wherever Jesus is, there is always humility, meekness, love, and the Cross.”
