"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with
God, and the Word was God.

The same was in the beginning with God.

All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any
thing made that was made.

In Him was life; and the life was the light of men.

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness
comprehended it not.

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and
we, beheld His glory, the glory as the only begotten Son of
the Father), full of grace and truth."

- John 1: 1-5, 14

"In The Redemption we find the most profound basis for the
words 'be not afraid.' For God so loved the world that He
gave his only Son. This Son is always present in the history
of humanity as Redeemer. The Redemption pervades all of
human history, even before Christ, and prepares its
eschatological future.

It is The Light that shines in the darkness and the darkness
has not overcome it. The power of Christ’s Cross and
Resurrection is greater than any evil which man could, or
should, fear."

- Pope John Paul II
