Our readings today speak of darkness and light. As we look at our planet, and ourselves, we see that both dark and light are necessary. In darkness seeds germinate. In the darkness of the womb humans are formed. In darkness we rest.
If however we stay only in the darkness, do not move on, we wither and die. Part of that withering is feeling overwhelmed by grief and loss, destressed by what is happening in our lives, in our family, in our country and world. Things begin to seem impossible to improve. We become depressed and lose hope.
