Hanukkah and Christmas are a time to celebrate miracles.
The miracle here is that a vial with only a single day’s supply of pure olive oil was available to keep the menorah lit in the Temple. But miraculously, the oil from the vial burned for eight days, until the Jews could produce more oil suitable for use to keep the light of the menorah burning.
People of faith must have the courage to live their faith. We are in the never-ending battle between light and dark.
Do you know why the dark hates the light? Because if with just one light, it was never be truly dark.
In a season which seems to be fading from view, let us be that light.
