Prayer of the Day
Feast of St. Ephrem and St. Columba, Abbot & MissionaryJune 9th, 2015
Today in the Gospel we receive an important instruction on the mission of the Community. It should be the salt of the earth and the light of the world (Matthew 5 : 13-16). By using images of daily life, Jesus makes known our mission : to be salt. Matthew 5 : 14-16: Light of the world. The community should be light, it should enlighten. It should not be afraid to show the good that it does. It does not do it to make itself seen, but what it does can be seen. The salt does not exist for itself. The light does not exist for itself! This is how the community should be. It cannot remain enclosed in itself.
