The atmosphere of Jesus is luminous. “I am the light of the world”. With Jesus there is no trace of clouds or storm, of pathos and tempestuous violence, of darkness rent by lightning flashes. There is not even a partial shadow. Everything in Jesus is crystal clear. This clarity does not exclude an often keen sharpness.

There is no tragedy about Jesus, because no problem remains without a solution. The disciple’s difficulty is not to be ignorant of what he must do, but to have the strength to do it. What is called the tragedy of human existence disappears when confronted by the pure light of Christ. If we see the light, we can walk in the light.
