Every Christmas Eve I put out luminarias, just like I grew up doing with my family. It may be a few hundred less and it may not be as spectacular with the street lights going, but I love them. I love the memories, but mostly I love the tradition and what it represents. Lighting the way for Mary and Joseph. Here’s one from last year.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. John 1:1-5
