Commentary on the Gospel of

Bible Diary - CMF


Today, of all days, the Christian heart feels the darkness of the world, and allows itself to look at the darkness in itself.  In the darkness we rise for the Easter Vigil.  Against a black sky we light the Easter fire.  But this too would be a forlorn gesture if Christ were not risen from the dead!  Suddenly the Paschal Candle is alight.  Lumen Christi! – the light of Christ lightens our darkness.  Exultet! – “Exult all creation!  Rejoice, O earth in shining splendor, radiant in the brightness of your King…..Darkness vanishes forever…..!”
