In the days since Christmastide mysteries of faith many theological matters come to mind in knowing Jesus. All of the spiritual masters tell us that it's crucially important for us to come to personally know Jesus Christ, our Lord, in his true light. The image of Christ as a light is reinforced in the baptismal rites where we talk about the sacrament bringing us into inexpressible light. It is also recalled in the Creed. Our enlightenment into the mystery of Jesus' divinity continually needs our reflection, especially when the gospels of the Transfiguration and the Resurrection are proclaimed. As Jesus is transfigured and resurrected, so us: are Children of the Light. We know that Jesus really lives in the light of the Trinity. There, the ultimate grace given by God the Father is having Jesus revealed to us in his true Light. The recognition (awareness) of this grace can only be given to those who are willing to ask for it: "ask and it will be given to you," the Lord says.
The Maronite Church proclaims the joy Christmas and the belief in Christ as Light of the Cosmos at the Sedro for the Sundays of Epiphany:
You have clothed us with your baptism: the robe of glory and the seal of the holy Spirit. You have called us to be spiritual children through our second birth in baptism.
May the Light of Christ, the Risen Lord, continue to be the Light of our lives every day; May it never leave any corners of darkness in us untouched; May the forgiveness and healing his Light brings fully transform us; That we too, the children of the Church, may truly become the Light of Christ for the world, as we pray before the altar at the end of our Eucharistic Celebration.
