Family Reflection Video: A Light That Heals

Today I share two amazing true accounts of the light of Christ that burned in Saint Padre Pio.

The light of Christ burning so brightly in Padre Pio’s heart allowed him to see into the very soul of those coming to him for confession, healing the darkness of their wounds. If the light of Christ resides in your heart, it will grow and shine light in the darkness of others.

Christ’s light burning in us can heal the wounds in our own hearts and in our own families. Like the soldier in the story, do you or someone you love live each day with a wounded heart? Think about how the light of Christ in you can bring hope and healing to the situation.

May you open your eyes to see the ocean of goodness in others; enlighten you to encourage all those who pass your way today; and inspire you to say a word of appreciation to your family members.
