Based on Isaiah 61:10-62:3. New Year's Reflection on the True Light of Christmas: We can't stay silent when reflecting on the glory of Christ. We don't just stop speaking about the Christ-child just because Christmas has passed. We continue to speak about it. We will not be quiet . . . What has begun as a small light has become a new dawn. It has become a blazing torch. It has become something that we see and we speak.
