An unknown author wrote “Without faith, we are as stained glass windows in the dark.” A priest wanted to show the stained glass windows depicting the nativity of Jesus at all the Christmas Masses, but nearly every Mass was celebrated in darkness. He created an elaborate plan for a huge spotlight strung outside to illuminate the window. It worked. Without light a stained glass window is just a black space in the wall without meaning. Without faith our lives are dark places without meaning. Let today be colored brilliantly by your faith.
