I like Father Jonathan's books and I think I've read all of them. I do remember "the Christopher Movement" as a young Catholic girl in school. It is still so relevant in our time and it's wonderful Father Jonathan applied it to our time now in the world.
Father Jonathan Morris' books will speak in a positive way to many people, I feel, who are looking for inspiration. I have always admired him and his writings. This book is an excellent source of many of his 3 minute TV talks. All Christians should acquire Light in the Darkness and read it daily. Each talk in written form takes only 3 minutes to read.
The joy from doing so will last for hours or days. Read more 2 people found this helpful Helpful Comment Report abuse msinex 5. Morris has again gathered the inspiration of God's people and their walk with Him, and shared it in a work that calls to Christians to re dedicate their lives to Christ. Taking the next step, Light in the Darkness suggests how. The pages are filled with short, powerful spiritual lessons with bible quotes. We certainly need the Christopher motto in today's troubled world.
It is great to read several of the short essays a day. I usually read one or two and took time to think about each one and how each related to my life. Very good and worthwhile book.

John He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. John ,20 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil….
John While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them…. New International Version The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. New Living Translation The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.
English Standard Version The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. Berean Study Bible The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
Berean Literal Bible And the Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. And Christianity is on the defensive, culturally and legally, both here and in Europe, thanks in part to political correctness running amok in our schools and workplaces. It is easy in times like this to want to give up on our faith or on faith in general.
In an era when good is considered bad and vice versa; when the rule of law is being overrun by the rule of man; when some of our cherished institutions are on the defensive and threatened with litigation; and when our children aimlessly indulge in mindless hedonism that provides short-term pleasure but long-term feelings of inadequacy, it is easy to want to throw in the towel. But that is the last thing that we as Christians, and especially as Catholic Christians, should be doing now!
Now more than ever each of us is going to need to be a light in the darkness. This will not be easy. The degree of corruption and sin in both the public and private sectors has become so overwhelming, that sooner or later we will all experience suffering of possibly Biblical proportions, much like that found in countries like Venezuela and Syria today! Or to another Adolf Hitler, perhaps. We must all pray and fast for that not to be the case! Pray for the grace to endure what is coming.
An important part of being a light in the darkness is letting Christ work within you. Even in, perhaps especially in , times of adversity! This is perhaps the most challenging aspect of our faith: carrying our own crosses with some degree of level-headedness while we help others to carry theirs! More than once in the gospels Jesus stressed our need to bear with hardships, carrying our crosses, in following Him Matt Being graceful will also be part of being that light in the darkness in a world that seems to be getting crazier and crazier!
This might indeed be the time St. Perhaps none of this should come as a surprise, considering his prophecy. Paul Arena, St. Paul Plus many, many more.
