Advice from the Night Sky

by Ilan Shamir

See the big picture

Be a star

Keep looking up

Don’t be afraid of the dark

Stay full of wonder

Expand your horizons

When I read the line be a star, it reminded me of all those sailors who have been guided by the light of the stars.  May your light shine brightly so that it will guide others.

May God open our eyes to see His kingdom everywhere.  May the light of Christ shatter the darkness in the world, so we will see His loving presence in our lives and in our troubled world.


Fr. David
