We hear these words in one of the Epiphany hymns which we celebrate on January 6: “Your light, Lord, has left its mark upon us.” Is this a true statement? Have each of us allowed the light of Jesus Christ to leave His mark on our lives? And what does it actually mean to have the light of Christ shine upon us?

If we have sincerely experienced Christ’s birth, and invited Him to be born anew in our hearts and lives, no one can enter the new year the same! We should be changed people! Or at least be people who are in the process of change!
