Roc Homily – Christmas 2016
A belated Merry Christmas to family & friends!
The picture sets the scene. The audio says it all.
The people who walked in darkness have seen a tiny bright light;
Those who lived in a land of deep darkness— on them the light has shined.
The people whose darkness keep them apart have found a welcoming light.
Those who dwelt in a land of gloom, a land of gloom and foreboding, have found a beckoning light.
Those afraid of walking in night have seen, have seen a saving light
The people ashamed who hide in the night have seen a kindly light
And those walking under the shadow of death have seen a peaceful light
Joseph and Mary walked into the night and they brought forth the beautiful light
There in OUR darkness, Jesus awaits, a precious and saving and welcoming light.
