Stained Glass in the Darkness

Strange title for a post, I know, but I got the idea when I was at All Saints’ Mass on Friday. It was evening, and in the darkness you can’t really make out the designs in the stained glass windows because there’s no light streaming through. But when you’re outside the church, the interior lights stream out, illuminating the images from the other side. Perhaps this was just my brain being weird, but I found it quite appropriate for All Saints’ Day. After all, Christ is the Light of the world, and the men and women illustrated on the windows were real people who had dedicated their lives to Him. By submitting to His Will, they allowed His Light to shine through them. In the darkened world, people were drawn to the Light these brave people carried into their lives.
