Prayer of the Day
Fifth Sunday of the YearFebruary 9th, 2014
These words of Jesus follow the Beatitudes each one beginning with the words ‘’How blessed’’. Here Jesus tells us we are the salt for the earth. Salt is only salt, if it has the properties innate in salt otherwise it is absolutely useless. Salt is used to flavour food and also to preserve from spoiling. We are asked to be Christians, who like the salt does what it is made for. At baptism we join Christ in being salt for the earth.
