Christ as the Light of the world is reflected in all Creation. JP Newell writes, " We are invited to pay attention, to see the Light that is at the heart of this moment and every moment, to know that we are full of Light, and can shine." Poet Mary Oliver says we are to love the Light, and keep giving ourselves to it:
When it's over, I want to say: all my life
I was a bride married to amazement.
I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.
I don't want to end up simply having visited this world.
