There will be a dawn

The economic news has been very dark lately and so has the financial situation of many people and families.

It is easy to wonder if the darkness will ever end.

Today’s Gospel (Luke 1:67-79) reminds us that Christ is coming: there will be a dawn.

In the tender compassion of our God
the dawn from on high shall break upon us,
to shine on those

who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death,
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.
