On this Day of Epiphany, Christians remember that the Magi guided by a divine light visited the Christ Child bearing gifts and their souls.
Let us pray for the divine light of Christ to manifest the fullness of his righteousness in this our moment of darkness.
The protests against the election of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris that have escalated to violence at the US and at the California state capitals are truly an expression of darkness based on deception and fear-mongering.
As people committed to a civil society and a democratic process of governance, this is not the way to express differences of opinion. It certainly is not the way to be as people of faith.
Let us pray for our broken society and recommit to being followers of Christ who is the Light of the World.
