We all know of instances when darkness has been diminished, when hurts have been healed, when pain has been alleviated and when the human spirit has shone with compassion and inclusivity. Through his gospel, St. John wants us to understand that light does not obliterate the darkness… it’s simply there to provide a steady, albeit flickering, constant and faithful presence. This is the same message of the incarnation, the birth of Jesus. Emmanuel—“God with Us”—enters into the darkness to sit alongside us as a Providential advocate, a Providential presence. In that humble, holy and luminous action, we find hope. By making a financial gift to the Sisters of Divine Providence in support of our ministries, you join us in bringing the light of God’s providence to dark places.
