Christmas, Epiphany and Candlemas are the three blessed beacons of the Christmas season. Each one in turn flashes God’s brightness to a world in darkness. Each one in turn is greater in intensity and spreads its comforting ray further and further. Each one proclaims that God, Light of true Light, has come to live in our midst first to Jew, then to Gentile, and then to the universal Church. Now we no longer live in darkness of spirit.
