In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
He was in the beginning with God;
all things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made.
In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
Father, take us back to the beginning. Take us back to the Word made flesh who created us, loves us, and sustains our lives for an eternity. We seek the light of Christ and reject the darkness of this world. May the light of our Lord Jesus Christ rule in our hearts. Amen.
