From the Word of the Day
You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. (Matthew 5: 13-14)
“You are the salt of the earth”. The discourse of the Beatitudes must be concretized in the life of the disciple. The image of salt well expresses the idea that the Good News must penetrate the world in depth.
“You are the light of the world”. The Beatitudes must be radiated. The idea of spreading follows that of penetrating. It is the request to the disciples to be witnesses with their life.
Today, I will ask Jesus to help me to give flavor to my days by living mercy and giving light to those who are confused, in darkness, searching for truth and peace.
