"A light for revelation to the Gentiles"

Blessed Guerric of Igny (c.1080-1157), Cistercian abbot 
1st Sermon for the Purification, 3-5 ; SC 166 (trans. ©Cistercian publications Inc., 1970)
"A light for revelation to the Gentiles"

O full of Grace, you I congratulate and praise. You gave birth to the Loving-Kindness I received; you gave shape to the candle I accepted. You prepared the wax for the touch of the light... when as the unblemished mother you clothed the unblemishable Word in unblemished flesh."

Come then, my brethren, give an eye to that candle burning in Simeon's hands. Light your candles too by borrowing from that Light; for these candles I speak of are the lamps which the Lord orders us to have in our hands (Lk 12,35). “Come to him and be enlightened” (Ps 34[33],6), so as to be not merely carrying lamps but to be very lamps yourselves, shining inside and out, for yourselves and for your neighbors... Come, I say, to Jesus who shines out to us from Symeon's arms. He will give light to your faith, luster to your works, meaning to your words, ardor to your prayer, purity to your intentions...

And when this life's lamp is extinguished there will arise a life's light which can never be extinguished, “a light brighter than the noonday, arising as it were at the evening of your life” (cf Jb 11,17). And at the very moment when you think you are burnt out, your wick's flame will “rise like the morning star” (cf ibid.) and “your darkness shall become as the noonday” (cf Is 58,10). “No more need of the sun's rays by day nor of the brilliance of the moon to light your way at night: the Lord will be for you an everlasting light” (Is 60,19), for the Lamb it is who is the lamp of the new Jerusalem (Rv 21,23), he who is “blessing and splendor through endless ages! Amen.” (Rv 7,12 Vg).
