The Sun Was Darkened

The solar eclipse in Donaghadee Co.Down around 09.15ish Pic. Linden Mack

There was a time, long long ago, when a solar eclipse terrified people and led them to think that the world was coming to an end, or the gods were angry - or appeased as we see in Mel Gibson's movie Apocalypto (not for the faint hearted). We had a solar eclipse up here in Ireland today, though from where I was little happened - too cloudy. A few of us went out to see it after Mass but were disappointed - as one person said: "Well Father, that's that: nothin!'" so we went home for breakfast. But it was interesting to follow the reporting from around the world. 

There is something apocalyptic about eclipses, the sun darkening and all that. There is nothing to be afraid of, it is natural, but perhaps also a timely reminder that the time will come when the sun will darken, when the world will fall into darkness - and what light will there be then? The light of Christ and his disciples.
