Alleluia, alleluia! I am the light of the world, says the Lord; anyone who follows me will have the light of life. Alleluia!
Gospel Acclamation for the 30th Sunday in Ordinary Time
We all have experience of darkness – physical darkness, moral darkness.
Jesus is the light that drives that darkness back and brings light to every human situation and condition, that redeems it and brings it to the fullness of life.
He is our call to light, to life.. He is the very light of life, the light that is very life.
