"For the Word of God is a light to the mind and a fire to the will. It enables man to know and to love him." (St Lawrence of Brindisi) How often have we sought to know the will of God? How often have we wanted God to speak to us? His Word, the Scriptures, give us both the will of God for us and is his way of speaking to us daily. How often do we really read and reflect on God's Word? True, we may have some difficulty comprehending what God says in his Word. But, he has given us the gift of the Holy Spirit to enlighten us, to be that light and fire for us. A greater clarity comes with our persistence in reading and reflecting on his Word. In time, the Word of God not only is a light and fire but also becomes food for our journey.
