We Who Dwell in Darkness

June 10, 2019

The Winter solstice has just passed and these days are the shortest of the year. The days are such that the periods of darkness are now longer than daylight. It is fitting that Christ was born just following the solstice as from here the days will lengthen gradually until the longest days of the year–the Summer solstice. It is fitting because Christ is the light, and His birth is the “dawn from on high.” But what are the symbols of light and darkness supposed to represent really? Christ did not come simply to usher in the longer days of Spring and Summer, but to be our light. What does this mean?
