Message from the Principal
A Shining Forth
“It is better to light one small candle than to curse the darkness.” I believe that is true. But it’s better to light many candles than one small candle, for obvious reasons: more light and heat can be enjoyed from many.
Tomorrow, January 6th, we will celebrate Epiphany. Well, maybe we will. Some people probably don’t even realize tomorrow is a religious holiday. It isn’t as well-known as most others. On Epiphany we remember the Wise Men who came from the East, following the star to worship the Baby Jesus. The star has become a symbol of the observance. It shone brightly and pointed the way.
Actually, Epiphany means “a shining forth”. One application for us is to shine forth in our Christian faith and point others in the right direction. Using us as an instrument, the Holy Spirit may lead them to come to worship the Christ Child in their lives just as the Wise Men did. We let our light shine and the warmth that radiates from it by our words and actions: daily Christian living. Some light a single candle, others shine forth with the brilliant light of many. Ask God to help you shine forth and proclaim Him King in all you say and do. And . . . Happy Epiphany to you!
