Just as the Lord suffered on the cross and was crucified, before Him, His Forerunner was beheaed through human injustices. The acts of darkness are those that want to kill the prophet of God and the Lord Himself. But the light that filled him and shown through him – is the eternal light in which he clothed himself from the mother’s womb. She was victorious in the death of St. John the Forerunner and in the crucifixion of the Lord.
The light of God shines and continuously radiates this world and calls every being to be a carrier of the works of light, to be a receiver of that divine light through baptism. Our people have been baptized for centuries. But today there are more and more who rely on the works of darkness, human knowledge and power.
