JUNE 9, 2009

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."

Christians are called to be salt and light to the world. Salt gives
taste not to itself but to all kinds of food. If we are hypertensive
and the doctor tells us to take a low-salt diet we'll know definitely
the difference. Food will be tasteless and bland.

Light to the world… can we see anything in darkness? When Mother
Teresa of Calcutta was being the salt and light – it was hard work.
She prayed a lot, she picked up the dying from the streets, she cared
for the abandoned. She did her daily chores quietly and without
fanfair and it attracted many people in the whole world. Mother Teresa
gave inspiration to many people, including Christians and those from
other religious groups. She inspired others to do better, become more
charitable, more compassionate, become better people. Let us be
instruments of enlightenment, like the salt or the lamp which gives
flavor, illumination and meaning to the lives of others.
