In our Gospel lesson for today we hear Jesus instructing his disciples and some Greeks about his upcoming death, and in his words we learn a valuable lesson. Whether we are journeying with Christ to the cross, or whether we are journeying with someone else unto death, or whether we are simply going through a dark time in our lives, we are reminded today that just as Christ was not alone in his dark hour, as he heard God’s voice speak to him from heaven, so we too are not alone during the trying times in our lives because we know that Christ our Lord is with us in baptism, and He calls us to believe in the light as He forever shines light on our path, and He brings us the hope of the resurrection where all things are made new.

John 12:20-36

Light In Our Darkest Hour
