Why the name Lux Lucet? Well, I liked the sound of it. At least that’s one reason. But on a more serious note, I chose it because it reflects my prayer for this blog. Lux Lucet is Latin for “The light shines” and is taken from the Vulgate translation of the John 1:5, which reads in English, “And the light shines in the darkness and the darkness did not comprehend it.”
The masthead photo is from a Waldensian church in Palermo, Italy. The Waldensians were Italian Christians who, when it was all but forgotten during the middle ages, preached the gospel of grace and suffered greatly at the hands of the Roman Catholics for their faith. The symbol of a lamp surrounded by seven stars with the words Lux Lucet in Tenebris was a symbol used by the Waldensians and also by other Christian groups during the time of the Reformation.
