Liturgy of the Light

During a celebration of the Liturgy of the Light:

Lina, age 4, looked frightened as she gazed into her lit candle. I asked if she was scared of the fire. She nodded yes without blinking or taking her eyes off of the flame. I asked if she wanted to blow her candle out. With equal intensity she shook her head no. Lina was experiencing deeply the power of the mystery; innately she knew that this power was greater than her fear.
