You know those moments when you look through the branches of a leaf-heavy tree and see the sunlight peeking through? Where every leaf appears to be a different shade of green and the light seems to dance and sparkle? That is "el resol." It is what happens when light transforms what we see and experience.
According to Psalms 34:5, when we seek God’s face, we not only reflect God’s Light, but we ourselves become radiant. And in the gospel of John, Jesus is called the Light, God’s radiance embodied.
This month, contemplate what it means to seek God's face, to be imbued with radiance in the way Jesus was. Take note of how the Light transforms your experiences but also what your radiance brings to others.
The above reflection is one of a series called El Peregrinaje or Pilgrimage. Each blog in this series offers meditations on words in Spanish and English and includes brilliant photos of daily life taken during a month-long pilgrimage across El Salvador in September 2021 by Jordan Shive and Micaela Bueno. The meditations were written by Michelle Negron Bueno and Micaela Bueno and compiled in the 2022 Enlace calendar.
