Fourth Sunday of Lent
Todays gospel speaks of light and darkness. There are times when darkness can
seem comforting when it makes no demands on us. Light disturbs when it forces us
to squint, refocus and take action regarding what we see. In light we see others
clearly as they are. In families, the challenge is always to live in the lightnot in
avoidance or denial.
