God created the world as a place of life and love, (Is 45:18) and created every person to be loved, and things to be used. But the devastating reality of sin ruptured this plan, and so persons are abused and material things are more loved. The consequent pain and sorrow, sickness and suffering, have caused much struggle for men and women. However, for the believer in Christ, there is great hope, and to the non-believer there is a great offer: the true Light of the world! This is the light that darkness has not, and will not ever overcome. (Jn 1:5) The Eucharist, Jesus Christ Himself, is that ongoing visible event of life, the ongoing incarnation at the heart of the Church, and we see that the Light has set his tent among us. (Jn 1:14) ~Archbishop Fouad Twal, Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem
