Today, from the archives, this scrumptious morsel of words that bear reading and re-reading, by Gerard Manley Hopkins
“The world is charged with the grandeur of God.
It will flame out, like shining from shook foil;
And for all this, nature is never spent;
There lives the dearest freshness deep down things;
I’m grateful for the Spirit of God who makes those He inhabits to be lights in dark places despite themselves! Shine on!
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” Jn.8:12 ESV
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Mt.5:14 ESV
*”reck His rod” = heed His divine authority
