John 19:30 (Jesus) said, “It is finished.”
“My beloved, I have been infinitely patient with this generation. But they choose the god of the age—the false god—over the One True God. In many ways, they have crucified the Son of Righteousness and set free the thief, the liar, the murderer. My beloved, the day draws to a close. Soon it will be night. Cling to me in complete trust for the light of Christ will dispel the darkness for those whose hearts are near to mine. Child, this earth is weary, weighed down by sin. I come to set it free and you will see it leap like a young calf when the dawn breaks. Keep this in mind, my child. What will come in the daytime will be beyond imagining. But first, the night.”
My Jesus I trust in you. Darkness cannot overcome your light, and even one small spot of light sends darkness fleeing to the corners. Jesus, one true Light, God of mercy, Lover of souls, we trust in you. Amen.
