Three 20-something women trying to figure out what it means to be lay, Catholic, and modern all at once.

This is just a little post of hope for my Magdalene sisters who may be feeling like their spiritual lives are in darkness. I've been coming across SO MANY Scriptures about the Light of God. I'm posting a few of them in the hope that the Word of God will illuminate your life, and help His light to penetrate your souls -- for we serve a faithful God who will not abandon us to the darkness!

Isaiah 9: 2-4
"The people that walked in darkness, have seen a great light: to them that dwelt in the region of the shadow of death, light is risen. Thou hast multiplied the nation, and hast not increased the joy. They shall rejoice before thee, as they that rejoice in the harvest, as conquerors rejoice after taking a prey, when they divide the spoils. For the yoke of their burden, and the rod of their shoulder, and the sceptre of their oppressor thou hast overcome, as in the day of Median."

Isaiah 58:11 (Douay Rheims translation)
"And the Lord will give thee rest continually, and will fill thy soul with brightness, and deliver thy bones, and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a fountain of water whose waters shall not fail."

Hosea 6:1-3
"In their affliction they will rise early to me: Come, and let us return to the Lord: For he hath taken us, and he will heal us: he will strike, and he will cure us. He will revive us after two days: on the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. We shall know, and we shall follow on, that we may know the Lord. His going forth is prepared as the morning light, and he will come to us as the early and the latter rain to the earth."

Lamentations 3:22-24
"The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness. "The Lord is my portion," says my soul, "therefore I will hope in Him."

John 1: 4-5
"In him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it."

John 8: 12
"Jesus spoke to them, saying: I am the light of the world: he that followeth me, walketh not in darkness, but shall have the light of life."
