Light and Darkness: In today’s Gospel, Jesus points out that those who live in sin, prefer to live in the darkness of deception and evil that divide and destroy relationships, lives and vocations.  Those who live and serve in God’s Truth and Love, have nothing to hide.  They glorify God through their lives and have no fears and insecurities.

 Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 3:16-21

Jesus said to Nicodemus: ‘God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. For God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but so that through him the world might be saved.

‘No one who believes in him will be judged; but whoever does not believe is judged already, because that person does not believe in the Name of God’s only Son. And the judgement is this: though the light has come into the world people have preferred darkness to the light because their deeds were evil.

     ‘And indeed, everybody who does wrong hates the light and avoids it, to prevent his actions from being shown up; but whoever does the truth comes out into the light, so that what he is doing may plainly appear as done in God.’
