Sunday 9 February

5th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Isaiah 58:7-10; Psalm 112:4-9; 1 Corinthians 2:1-5; Matthew 5:13-16

Salt and light!

Salt and light! So vital for life. Yet too much of either can destroy life. It’s a matter of balance. All things in moderation. Salt and light. We are to identify with these ingredients if we expect to be effective witnesses for Jesus; if we truly want the world to “taste and see: the goodness of God”.

I am salt when I preserve my dignity and remain patient in the face of bigotry, misjudgement, intolerance, persecution. I am light when my words carry truth, my eyes speak mercy, my heart beats love.
