You are the salt of the earth, says the Lord in the gospel reading for Mass today. You are the people who give the flavour of God into the recipe of life simply by living by his way. It is a most reassuring statement from Jesus as we continue reading from the Sermon on the Mount. Similarly “You are the light of the world” Light is one of the qualities needed for our eyesight to work well.
So may our lives act like a light in a time of reduced light in life around us. Not because of us, but rather because of the power of Jesus Christ working through us (or sometimes despite us!).
A short gospel extract at Mass this weekend. But a message that is always reliable and true.
