5th Sunday in Ordinary Time

9th February 2020

You Are Salt of the Earth, Light of the Nations

In this Sunday’s Gospel (Matthew 5:13-16) Our Lord uses the two images of salt and light to explain what his disciples should be like.  A true Christian is a person not just for himself, but also for others – he has an effect on his environment in which he lives, just as light and salt.  Our Lord does not say we are to become salt and light, but that we are already both, since we have committed ourselves to live like him, and be like Him.  

It is always good to preach and teach with words, but it is more powerful to preach with a clear Christian attitude and way of life.                   

God bless,

Fr Michael
