Today's feast is that of St. Maximus of Turin (380-466):
The celestial day is perpetually bright and shining with brilliant light; clouds can never darken its skies. In the same way, the light of Christ is eternally glowing with luminous radiance and can never be extinguished by the darkness of sin.What a great reminder for us to go about our business of doing His will, regardless of the effects of sin in and around us. Jesus cannot be overcome and neither can we if we walk in His steps. No matter how dark the world is, we always have the light of Christ to show us the way. St. Maximus also reminds us of our final destination: life in the celestial day.
