JANUARY 27, 2011

Readings: Heb 10:19-25 / Ps 24:1-2, 3-4, 5-6 / Mk 4:21-25

HEBREWS 10:19-25
So, my friends, we are assured of entering the Sanctuary by the blood
of Jesus who opened for us this new and living way passing through the
curtain, that is, his body. Because we have a high priest in charge of
the House of God, let us approach with a sincere heart, with full
faith, interiorly cleansed from a bad conscience and our bodies washed
with pure water. Let us hold fast to our hope with¬out wavering,
because he who promised is faithful. Let us consider how we may spur
one another to love and good works. Do not abandon the assemblies as
some of you do, but encourage one another, and all the more since the
Day is drawing near.

MARK 4:21-25
Jesus said to his disciples, "When the light comes, is it to be put
under a tub or a bed? Surely it is put on a lampstand. Whatever is
hidden will be disclosed, and whatever is kept secret will be brought
to light. Listen then, if you have ears!" And he also said to them,
"Pay attention to what you hear. In the measure you give, so shall you
receive and still more will be given to you. For to the one who
produces something, more will be given, and from him who does not
produce anything, even what he has will be taken away from him."

The parable of the lamp in the Gospel of Mark points out the meaning
of discipleship. After having received the message of the Gospel, we
are asked not to keep to ourselves what we heard and believed. We are
asked to share it with others. Like a lighted lamp we should be the
source of light to those who have not heard the word of God, a source
of light to those who live in the darkness of ignorance and of poverty

If we have charity and our deeds are in accord with our Christian
values, we are true disciples and we will have our reward on the last
day at our final meeting with the Lord. "Pay attention to what you
hear, the measure that you measure out will be used to measure what
you receive."

In what practical ways can we let our light shine?
