Dear Friends and Parishioners!

Let us all rejoice in the Lord, for our savior has been born in the world. Today true peace has come down to us from heaven.

Long ago there lived a wise and good king who loved his people. He wanted to know how they lived and wanted particularly to know about their hardships. Disguised and dressed in the clothes of a beggar, he used to visit the homes of the poor. No one whom he visited ever guessed he was their ruler.

Theme: Those who walked in darkness have seen a great light.

Apart from those who live in the polar regions of our planet, most of the peoples of this earth experience day and night on a daily basis. In addition to the routine occurrences of sunrise and sunset, there are other experiences of light and darkness which may lend themselves to a fuller understanding of today’s scripture readings. Eclipses of the sun and moon, misconstrued and feared by the people of old, sum up the experience of darkness and light into a few minutes. Before these phenomena were understood by scientists, eclipses were regarded as portents of evil, offering cosmic commentary regarding some earthly crisis; these days this is no longer the interpretation. Survivors of wars narrate the dreaded blackouts whereby every window was darkened or covered to prevent enemy from detecting a target for their attack. Even here in Uganda during guerrilla wars people sometimes spent weeks and months hidden under the pall of darkness, waiting for the time of their relief and liberation. It is written that in November of 1965, a power failure plunged parts United States and Canada, into a darkness that lasted for thirteen hours. About thirty million people living in eighty thousand square miles of territory were affected.

Readings : 1st Is.8:23-9:3; Ps.27; 2nd 1Cor.1:10-13.17; Gospel: Mt.4:12-23.

Divine light is certainly stronger than the darkness in the world and that is why it is better to respond to Jesus than to follow the voices in world. The people of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali went through generations of wars, suffering and shame but finally when the Lord of days appeared in their midst, such darkness was turned into glory and light (first reading). The Psalmist affirms his strong conviction and belief in God who enlightens and offers him victory over his enemies. St Paul urges the Corinthians to be united in the light of Christ and encourages them to work unified as one (second reading). Repentance is a key to live under the light of God and in fact, Jesus indicates that it is a prerequisite to the preaching of the Good News and to heal diseases and sicknesses (gospel).
