Shining Through

A little girl regularly sat in church next to stained glass windows with pictures of St. Matthew, St. Peter, and St. John. She was always fascinated by the way the light shone through in such a brilliant manner. One day her Sunday School teacher asked her what a saint was. She answered, “A saint is someone who lets the Son shine through.”

Sounds like a pretty good answer to me!

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”—Matthew 5:14-16.
