Many people are asking is there light in the world after September 11th or after Bali? Why such hatred, such bloodshed, such tears? These have been part of the human story. And yet Nicodemus comes by night to Jesus and finds light and he has to live this light by putting the truth into action.
We see the Cross of Christ as the great instrument of light and life and as we call to mind our sins we remember there is room for growth and being made new. If we believe, we can have eternal life.
