“Now we are aware of the fact that during recent years some artists, gravely offending against Christian piety, have dared to bring into churches works devoid of any religious inspiration and completely at variance with the right rules of art.”
— Ven. Pope Pius XII (25 December 1955)

Light Upon the World
published 24 December 2013 by Richard J. Clark

ASED ON JOHN 1:9: “The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world.” Although it was never composed for the liturgy, this piece was originally written in 1989 when I was 19 years old. There have been many different arrangements over the years. This version quotes the Introit for Christmas Day, “Puer natus est nobis.”

Have a blessed Christmas, and know the Light of Christ shines upon you and dwells within you!
