The Divine Lamp

The unfolding of thy words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple…Make thy face shine upon thy servant, and teach me thy statutes

In His person and mission, heralded by the Baptist, our Lord manifested and communicated such healing and salvation (gospel). We are called upon to wait patiently for the fullness of the Messianic age (2nd reading), as we glorify the works of God and look forward to the final coming of the Lord (Ps).
