TUESDAY, 10th Week in Ordinary Time

June 12, 2018 – TUESDAY, 10th Week in Ordinary Time



1 Kgs 17: 7- 16 / Mt 5: 13- 16


[Independence Day]


GOSPEL READING:           Mt 5: 13- 16

Jesus said to his disciples, "You are the salt of the earth. But if salt has lost its strength, how can it be made salty again? It has become useless. It can only be thrown away and people will trample it.


"You are the light of the world. A city built on a mountain cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and covers it; instead it is put on a lampstand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way your light must shine before others, so that they may see the good you do and praise your Father in heaven."



In tf{e- first reading we read about how, during a severe drought, God fed the prophet Elijah, a widow of Zarephath and her son: "The jar of flour was not emptied nor did the jug of oil fail, in accordance with what Yahweh had said through Elijah." (1 Kgs 17: 16)


In the Gospel reading Jesus reminds his followers of their lofty calling, to be "salt of the earth" and "light of the world." Jesus challenges us to give flavor ro an otherwise dull or bland life and to act as a preservative for love and harmony in our relationships, much like what salt does to food. As light of the world, Jesus tells us to share our light with others, to reduce gloom and darkness. Indeed, much like the song, "One Little Candle," it requires only a tiny spark of light in a room to break its darkness.


To be salt and light requires a strong and resilient faith, one that can stand firm amidst life's difficult and cruel challenges. To be salt and light is to be a missionary on God's errand and mission, which is never easy. With God's grace, we can be salt and light for the world.


Lord, grant us the grace to be salt and light for our world. Give us generous hearts to work for the spread of your Good News.
