Read the daily quote from Pope Francis

 

The 5th Sunday in Ordinary Time

This week we celebrate the Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time. Matthew’s Gospel shares Jesus’ words to his disciples.  He tells them “You are the salt of the earth…” and “You are the Light of the world…”  How do those words permeate our lives today?  We tend to want to salt our food (despite what doctors tell us) so that it tastes good.  We need physical light to see in the darkness.  How do we “flavor” the decisions we make with mercy?   Are our eyes “opened” when we are approached with a deal or finally “see” the truth in a person or plan? 

Paul’s letter to the Corinthians enriches the Gospel message – WE HAVE the Spirit within us and are guided by the grace of God when we make decisions or follow the Gospel to become light in the darkness of the world

Take time to reflect on our lives as salt & light…
