Tuesday 10th Week in Ordinary Time

June 12, 2007
Tuesday 10th Week in Ordinary Time - Year I

Brothers and sisters: As God is faithful, our word to you is not "yes"
and "no." For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was proclaimed to you
by us, Silvanus and Timothy and me, was not "yes" and "no," but "yes"
has been in him. For however many are the promises of God, their Yes
is in him; therefore, the Amen from us also goes through him to God
for glory. But the one who gives us security with you in Christ and
who anointed us is God; he has also put his seal upon us and given the
Spirit in our hearts as a first installment.

MATTHEW 5:13-16
Jesus said to his disciples: "You are the salt of the earth. But if
salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned? It is no longer
good for anything but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. You are
the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden. Nor
do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set
on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house. Just so,
your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds
and glorify your heavenly Father."

If we want to add flavor to people's lives and brighten up their
existence, then we should speak and act in ways that will have these
effects. When we come into a room, our presence should bring peace and
joy to those present. When we go to work or come home, do people feel
better because we are around, or do they get nervous because they
expect trouble? What kind of flavor or light do we bring with us? This
is the personal sense in which disciples can be salt a light for

In a world decaying because of dishonesty, disloyalty and disrespect,
we have to be committed to preserve our Judae-Christian traditions of
integrity responsibility and care.

In a world darkened by abortion, nuclear arms and ecological
pollution, people need us as guides to find solutions compatible with
the Gospel. In a world dimmed by unemployment, hunger and hostilities,
we have to take leadership roles to brighten the world's horizon. It
is an awesome task to transform the social order. But it is a task in
which we Christians should want to share. Remember it takes only a
tiny flame or light to dispel darkness over a vast area.

All of us can be that kind of salt and that kind of light. As we
worship God today, let us thank God for our high calling in life to be
signs of his presence in the world.
