St. Paul tells us that we are to “cast off the works of darkness

and put on the armor of light”—we are to conduct ourselves as

people of light. Too often people try to escape or reject their cross;

they flee to the darkness, escape in alcohol or sex, or immerse

themselves in anger, all because things have not gone their way.

Without the grace of God, this is our fate as well. Yet when we

are handed a cross, if we abandon ourselves and trust in God as

Christ did, what seems like defeat is in fact a victory! The evil that

is done to us, God can mold into good. Then we can sing

Hosanna to God in the highest, because the light of God will live

in us and we will see everything in his light.
