Light from Light is the work of Father Conley Bertrand, published through the Come, Lord Jesus! program, as a tool to help individuals, families, and faith groups prepare for the weekly celebration of the Eucharist in their homes by reflection on the Gospel prior to the celebration. Special stress is put on the Psalms as they reflect on the word of God and the Eucharist.
Members group together spending one-half to one hour of prayer, meditation, and study each week in preparation for Sunday's Liturgy of the Word and Eucharist. Light from Light is designed to carry out what Pope John Paul II called for in his apostolic letter, Novo Millennio Inuente. The title comes from the Nicene Creed which we recite every Sunday at Mass and expresses that Jesus is the Son who issues eternally from the Father's glorious being as spiritual light.
Three books are used in the program, one for each of the three-year cycles in the Church's celebration of the Mass. Each book is designed on the four-week cycle similar to the Liturgy of the Hours or Breviary prayed by clergy, religious, and many laity throughout the world.
The focus of the Light from LIght program is that the Mass is a wedding feast which is celebrated in anticipation of the heavenly nuptials described in the Book of Revelation.
